Build It For Andy

Andrea Broughan is a mother of two young children, a highly successful rugby player as a member of the Portarlington RFC and PortDara Falcons teams and a valued member of the Portarlington Community. 
In February of 2020 Andy was hospitalised for the second time with Meningitis. Since then she has suffered two cerebral strokes that led to complete damage to her spinal nerve from C1 to C6. 
There is almost no hope of recovery for Andy who requires full time ventilation and is unable to move or talk. 
Andrea will never be able to leave hospital because of the care that she requires and so we are fundraising so that a home can be built for her partner Adam and their two young children Evan (5) and Elena (4) . 
Already there have been significant contributions of both materials and labour but this project requires further funding in order to get the home that these children deserve completed. 
Please help us to build it for Andy. 
Thank you
