On Saturday 27th August, Dunlewey Celtic presented a cheque to the Donegal branch of the Irish Kidney Association of the funds recently raised for the charity.
The Irish Kidney Association provides assistance to renal patients and their families and carers, living with and affected by end stage renal disease. These needs are spread across all aspects of life.
The Donegal branch cater to families and patients from Donegal whether their needs may be within the county or if they must attend hospital elsewhere in the country.
A total of €6,090 was raised following a football tournament held in Dunlewey on Sunday 31st July in memory of Michéal “Roycee” Roarty who tragically passed away in 2019.
Michéal himself was a renal patient when he was 18 years old and the Donegal branch of the Irish Kidney Association are a charity that are held close to the hearts of Michéals family when they provided supports to them in their time of need.
This is the second event held in Micheal’s memory, and in total over €10,000 has been raised for the Donegal branch of the Irish Kidney Association in his name.
On behalf of the football club, Michéal’s family, and representatives from the Donegal branch of the Irish Kidney Association, we would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who donated to the cause.
Your generosity will go a long way towards helping people in need of the vital services provided by the Irish Kidney Association.
