Rachel Allen joins Down Syndrome Ireland and HB Hazelbrook Farm to launch the 2019 HB Fundays campaign


Who doesn’t love a party? Particularly if it’s a party with friends sharing a little magic over a delicious HB Hazelbrook Farm ice cream while also fundraising for an important cause. Celebrity chef Rachel Allen was on hand recently to bring these key ingredients together as she announced the details of the 2019 HB Fundays campaign. Rachel is calling on the public to raise vital funds for Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) by hosting a party with HB Hazelbrook Farm ice cream.

This year, DSI and HB Hazelbrook Farm hope to raise in excess of €300,000 from the HB Fundays campaign, with funds raised this year going towards increased support for families of children with Down syndrome. The money raised will really help to accelerate funding for two specific DSI programmes – See and Learn, which promotes speech and language development and aids communication in children with Down syndrome and Parent-Link, a support service provided by parent volunteers for new parents of babies with Down syndrome.
