The kind-hearted staff of Buncrana Medical Centre have raised €1,142 following a walking fundraiser for two local hospices.
Last month the team braved a day of wind and rain to walk 5k around Buncrana in support of the Donegal and Foyle hospices.
A total of €1,142 was raised from their efforts – which were proudly presented to each hospice recently.
Staff presented a cheque for €531 to community palliative care nurse Louise Duddy of Donegal Hospice. A further €611 was raised in online donations for Foyle Hospice.
“We would like to send a massive thank you to all our supporters,” said a spokesperson for the Buncrana Medical Centre team.
“It was a fabulous result for all involved.”
“Both hospices have supported and cared for our patients in need, at the hospice and also in the community. Thus allowing our terminally patients to die with dignity and without pain. Both services offering the highest level of palliative care and are invaluable services.”
