Tom Murphy’s farm and HB are expecting approximately 4,000 people out in support of the charity organisation. The nationwide ice cream campaign, supported by HB Hazelbrook Farm and Tesco Stores, is running in May and June with thousands of ice cream parties being hosted across Ireland.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, the HB Ice Cream Fundays campaign has raised over €2 million for Down Syndrome Ireland. All money raised goes towards Down Syndrome Ireland’s nationwide projects such as its early development programme, adult literacy programme, educational advice and research for parents and children, counselling and advocacy and special interest groups.
