Young enthusiastic musicians Leah and Rebecca Dilworth, Naoise Flynn and Matilda Cuddigan-Eck saw an opportunity to help raise money for the Time for Tilara’s Treatment Trust in their home village Ballycotton this weekend, when over 4,000 runners and supporters visited for the 40th Ballycotton 10 mile race. Twice Tilara’s age, at 10, the four Ballycotton National School classmates are so touched by the challenges beautiful little 5 year old Tilara faces with her condition, they really wanted to do a little something themselves to help.
