ACTOR and comedian Danny O’Carroll brought some Christmas cheer to two deserving local charities today – when he handed over cheques worth more than €21k.
The money was raised at his incredible celebrity bash at the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny earlier this month.
Today he handed over the proceeds of the night to the Children’s Unit at Letterkenny General Hospital where the €10,195 will help make the unit better.
And he handed over another €10,195 to the autistic unit at Lurgybrack National School.
Stars from sport and screen had attended the charity dinner – serving food to delighted fans.
They included many of the stars from the show in which Danny stars as ‘Buster’ – Mrs Brown’s Boys.
Danny told Donegal Daily: “I’d like to thank everyone who supported our night out, from all those who came from near and far, to those who supported the auction and raffle.
“These are two very deserving causes and it made my Christmas to be able to hand over this money to them today.”
He’s now hoping the Christmas charity dinner will be an annual event.
“I’m already drawing up a list of people to come along,” he added.
Super soccer stars Ronnie Whelan and Ray Houghton joined stars from Mrs Brown’s Boys, Adam (Ian Beale from Eastenders), rugby legend Shane Byrne and ex-world champ Bernard Dunne for the superb charity night.Tags:
