Following a jam-packed schedule of fundraisers for Paul ‘Diddler’ Dillon and his family last month, the Diddler fundraising committee has announced that €85,600.70 has been raised in a month.
Diddler (aged 45) was recently diagnosed with an illness which will require modifications to his family home.
But the cooperative community of Newtowncunningham refused to let the family face this challenging time alone.
A committee was formed in January to plan a series of fun events to ensure everyone can get the chance to lend a helping hand to Diddler.
Last month saw a host of events take place including Monster Charity Concert in the An Grianan Hotel, a 25 Card Drive in Biddy Friel’s bar and the Dash for Diddler 5K
A statement from the committee on Facebook read: “It would be impossible to thank everyone individually who contributed in one way or another, so a massive well done to everyone involved.
“The committee for this fundraiser is now dissolved and the page will be removed on Sunday.
“This just leaves us wishing Paul, Emma and the girls strength and love now and in the future.”Tags:
