Hi everyone, 

As you might know, we lost my Granda, Brendan O’Reilly, to COVID-19. There aren’t words to describe a loss like this.

The staff in nursing homes being so overwhelmed and him too weak to speak meant that we couldn’t make contact with him and tell him how loved he was during the last few weeks of his fight. Not being able to hold his hand as he always held ours, or cheer up him like he always cheered us all up was devastating.

These are strange times, usually, we all come together in sadness but at the moment, while we stay apart, my sister and I would like to do something positive in such a dark time to remember our granda.

My Granda spent a lot of his adult life as an active volunteer for SVP charity so My sister and I are going to be doing 5KM a day for 5 days in hope of raising a little bit of money to be able to donate in his memory. To a cause, he held close to his heart. If anyone would like to get involved by donating anything at all, running, walking or even cycling it would mean the world. 

For everyone who’s lost their lives and loved ones left behind and people still fighting were here for you. There is no going back to normal. There’s a new life without them a darker one but one we can make brighter with love and support.
