Brandon Bolger pictured in his new tractor
A young Carlow man battling cancer - who wished for a tractor so he could raise money to buy toys for other kids in hospital - has reached his fundraising target and bought the tractor of his dreams.
Brandon Bolger, 10, was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma – a rare disease affecting bone or soft tissue – last March and he needed €5,000 to make his kind-hearted dream come true.
Brandon's father, Craig, took to Facebook recently and said: "From the bottom of our heart, myself and Sandra want to thank Vincent Connaughton, James Reams, Declain Robson, Joan Brogan and Michael Brogan for going over and beyond and the long hours and the kindness they have showed us.
"Today you made Brandon Bolger forget all his worries. Thank you."
