Donard Day raises over £2.5k for Southern Area Hospice Services
On Saturday 17th August 2019, 30 participants took part in Donard Day for Southern Area Hospice Services which is run in association with main sponsors, CRASH Services.
The weather was kind and a great day was had by all with a fantastic total of £2,878.74 raised for Southern Area Hospice Services.
Southern Area Hospice Services would sincerely like to thank everyone who supported the event in any way, in particular CRASH Services who so kindly came on board as main sponsors for the event for the third year in a row, helping with the organisation of the event as well as providing t-shirts and very welcome post walk refreshments for participants in Hugh McCanns.
Thanks to everyone who took part in the walk to help raise much needed funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.
Southern Area Hospice Services is a local charity which provides care free of charge to local people who are living with Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease. With a fundraising target of £2.6 million in 2019, the Hospice Fundraising department relies heavily on the support of the local community supporting events such as Donard Day.
Jonathan McKeown, CEO of CRASH Services commented, "We were delighted to be part of the Donard Day team again this year and to work closely with the Hospice. It was an honour to present an amazing amount of over £2.5k to the Hospice raised from registration and sponsorship monies. I would like to thank everyone who took part in what turned out to be a great event but tough to get to the top!”
Eadaoin McCann, Marketing and Operations Executive of CRASH Services added, “I also would like to thank Hugh McCann’s Bar and Restaurant, Newcastle who provided some well-deserved tea, coffee, soup and sandwiches for participants coming down off the mountain.”
