In November 2019 our Calcutta Run Event Coordinator Hilary Kavanagh and committee member Jack Kennedy of A&L Goodbody travelled to Kolkata, India, to witness first-hand how the money raised directly impacts the lives of many children living in HOPE’s homes. They visited 4 of the projects completely funded by money generously raised by Calcutta Run participants and sponsors. Actor Jeremy Irons also visited the projects.
