It was a charity fundraiser that touched the hearts of people across Donegal and much further afield.
Highland radio presenter Lee Gooch and his family wanted to give something back to so many charities who had helped them in many ways.
And so they organised a bed push from Dublin’s Crumlin Hospital all the way to Letterkenny, a 250km push to be precise.
The result was made know today when Lee revealed that Noah’s Bed Push, named after his son Noah, has raised a staggering €253,815.75 was raised.
Today all nine beneficiaries were presented with cheques for €28,201.75 each.
Speaking today at presentations in The Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny, the team of Bed-pushers spoke of how they never thought this much money could be raised for such worthy beneficiaries and how it has been an honour to be part of this now momentous occasion.
This epic journey being followed by so many people on social media touched the hearts of people all over Donegal and further afield.
A substantial donation from New York at the end of January 2022 pushed the amount of cash raised even further past expectations.
The nine beneficiaries chosen by the Gooch family (listed below) will enable them to help other families who have a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
The beneficiaries include Letterkenny University Hospital, Children’s Ward Children’s Health
Foundation, Crumlin Hospital, Dublin Donegal Down Syndrome Association,
Children Disability Network Team, Donegal North Hand in Hand, Children’s Cancer Charity, Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, Ronald Mc Donald House Charities Blood Bike Northwest and BUMBLEance.
