Dr. Murty and Friends Make Presentation to Hospice
Dr. Murty and his dedicated team of fundraisers recently presented Southern Area Hospice Services with a cheque for a fantastic £11,000. The money was raised during 2018 when Dr. Murty and the team organised various collections and fundraising events throughout the Dungannon and Armagh areas.
Dr. Murty and his hard working team have been raising funds for Southern Area Hospice Services since 2005 and since then they have raised an enormous total of £218,102.06 for the Hospice.
The cheque presentation evening was hosted by Ralph, Norah and Heather Brown in the beautiful surrounds of Grange Lodge Country House. They put on a lovely spread which was enjoyed by members of Dr. Murty’s team along with representatives from Southern Area Hospice who were present.
Speaking at the Cheque Presentation Dr. Murty thanked everyone who assisted him with the various collections over the last year and indeed since he started fundraising for the Hospice. He also thanked the members of the public who give so generously to the various collections. He finished by thanking The Brown Family for so kindly hosting the group on the evening.
Anne Mac Oscar, Regional Marketing Officer for Southern Area Hospice said, “On behalf of everyone here at Southern Area Hospice Services I would like to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Murty and his entire team for this fantastic donation. We rely heavily on voluntary donations in order to keep our services going and we are so grateful to Dr. Murty and everyone who supported his efforts. Their dedication to raising funds for the Hospice is very much appreciated by all of us here. This is a very special year for the Southern Area Hospice as we celebrate our 30th Anniversary of providing Hospice Care to local people and their families.”
The money raised by Dr. Murty and his team will help Southern Area Hospice Services to continue their work providing care and support 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 relies heavily on the support of the local community to help them to continue their work.
