Sean, who has three children and one grandchild, was inspired to start fundraising for Concern, which helps millions of people suffering from extreme poverty across 23 countries, after seeing images of children starving on his television.
“I said to myself, ‘I have to do something about that,’ so I did,” he explained.
“I am semi-retired and I find this is a great thing to get involved with for an important cause. I would recommend others to do it too.”
Concern Worldwide have thanked and praised Sean and his many volunteers, which this year included an Irish man living in Sydney, Australia, for raising over €130,000 in the past 21 years.
