What an amazing day today "Go Gold For Gavin"

What an end to Gavin's first week back on chemotherapy in Crumlin...
Jayne's sister Deborah who's is a teacher in Loreto Secondary School came up with an idea and approached some schools and Montessori around the local area to see would they like to take part in a "Going Gold Day for Gavin".
The response she received was amazing and it spread wings very quickly to all the below.
All the kids were asked to wear something yellow/gold today.
Most people know that the Pink Ribbon signifies breast cancer which is amazing but so many people do not know that the Gold Ribbon is for Childhood Cancer..
But after today I think a lot of people will now know what it means..
Ms Eileen Jackson who is the Principal of St Patrick's NS (where Conor and Lucy attend) took it one step further and asked everyone to vote and donate €2 per vote for a choice of hair colours. Then she would dye her hair that colour and keep it for one week.
And as you can see from the below picture the winning vote was Pink:)
The support we have received from our local community and afar has been amazing and most of all the kids really got on board and seemed to all really enjoy and have a great day.
Gavin popped down with Jayne before going to Crumlin this morning to get a photo with Eileen too.
We will remember this day for as long as we live. Thank you thank you thank you everyone from all of us...TEAM GAVIN GLYNN xxxx
