A little Letterkenny boy was gifted with the ultimate present this week thanks to a team of Christmas heroes.
Dylan O’Kane (aged 9) is a wheelchair user, but his preferred mode of transport will be the Batmobile now – thanks to Christmas Spirit LK!
Christmas Spirit LK is a charity project established by Pete Rose, who enlisted some Letterkenny Gardaí and Donegal Rally Champion Manus Kelly to help deliver some festive cheer to a deserving boy.
Dylan and his mum Chelle were stunned to see Manus at their door, with the impressive motor in hand. The gardaí also gave Dylan a chance to check out their vehicle, which he was clearly taken by too!
The heartwarming moment was all captured on video by Christmas Spirit LK. This year, the charity organisation launched the ‘EverGlow Project‘ to raise funds for the Gynaecology Unit at Letterkenny University Hospital. They created another video to highlight the grief of pregnancy loss and shine a light on the often unspoken topic of miscarriage and child loss.
Dylan’s gift is just another element at the heart of their goodwill initiative, explains founder Pete Rose.
“This gift links in because it’s the essence of EverGlow, everything that Christmas Spirit LK is, is epitomised by the good we do for and in the community,” Pete told Donegal Daily.
