The Donegal Irish Farmers Association presented a cheque for €98,924 to Cancer Care West following a fantastic year of fundraising in 2019.
Charlie Doherty, treasurer and Michael Chance, chairman of IFA Cancer Care West Fundraising Committee presented the cheque to Grainne McGettigan, Donegal fundraiser for CCW.
The money was raised from three events last year, which were organised by the hard-working Donegal IFA committee.
Donegal’s Cancer Support Centre is staffed by psychologists, oncology nurses and a range of qualified cancer support specialists.
Providing support alongside your medical treatment, their individual support, workshops and groups are for every type and stage of cancer, whether you’re newly diagnosed, facing a recurrence or are dealing with side effects of treatment.
The centre also provide a Psycho-Oncology counselling service into the local hospital at Letterkenny University Hospital for patients affected by cancer.
They also offer support to professionals who work in the care of cancer patients.
The aim is to provide a homely, warm and welcoming environment.
The centre is open five days per week and you can drop in without an appointment for a chat and a cuppa, to browse the library, find out more about the activities or just use the centre as a haven of quiet and relaxation.
The committee would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who contributed in any way with the fundraising events.
“Letterkenny Cancer Care West Support Centre is truly thankful for your generosity,” a committee member said.Tags:
