Martina McClintock, originally from Carrigans but now living in Ballybofey, has proudly presented a cheque to Friends of Letterkenny University Hospital following a number of fundraisers.
Martina’s efforts were in memory of her late mother, Kathleen, who died on September 11 2020.
Kathleen was a service user of the Friends of LUH Oncology bus to travel to Dublin for her treatment. To give thanks for the vital service, Martina decided to do a sponsored climb of Croagh Patrick last year and other fundraisers to give back.
This week Martina met with Mary Gallagher, Vera Sweeney and Paddy Rooney, all from the Friends of LUH to present a cheque for €1,569.01. The money will go towards patient and family support at the hospital and to promote volunteerism to augment ordinary hospital services.
