All the winners from virtual race day, Racing for Rosabel

It was a terrific day of fun and frolics as men and women up and down the country donned their gladrags for #RacingForRosabel.

The virtual race day took place yesterday (Wednesday, July 29th) in aid of Rosabel’s Room.  This was set up by parents Suzanne McClean and Gary Monroe with The Irish Hospice Foundation after Suzanne and Gary tragically lost their little girl, Rosabel at just 16 months old.

The aim of the charity is to provide support to parents who are grieving by providing family-friendly bereavement suits in A&E departments across Ireland. They also have a Rosabel’s Room-to-Heal fund that can provide financial support to families who need to take time off work and pay for funeral costs.

In a bid to raise vital funds, people stuck on their Sunday best – and most certainly dressed to impress, leaving a very tough job for our judges, VIP’s editor Bianca Luykx, Stuart Montgomery, Rebecca Rose and Gillian Duggan.
