A retired garda is about to celebrate his 60th birthday with a daredevil parachute jump for charity.
PJ Costello, who is originally from Drumshanbo, has lived and worked in Moville since 1983. He retired in 2013, but his next adventure will see him taking to the skies for two great causes.
On October 6th, just four days before his 60th, PJ is skydiving for Cancer Care West Support Centre Donegal and St. John’s Hospital Patients Comfort Fund in Sligo. To donate, please visit PJ’s GoFundMe page at: https://gofund.me/52b2e6c6
“My sister is in long term care in St John’s Hospital Sligo so I thought it would be a nice gesture to do something for them and for the Cancer Care people in Letterkenny who do fantastic work,” PJ said.
PJ’s parachute jump takes place with the Wild Geese Flying Club based in Garvagh, Co. Derry.
His online fundraiser has already received great support from friends and family, and with just over a week to go, it is hoped that he can make the target of €1,000 before the big day.
