Support for The Rock patients

Support for The Rock patients

On Sunday 29th May, a fund raising night was held in aid of the patient’s comfort fund in The Rock Nursing Unit, Ballyshannon.

Through the generosity of many sponsors, the committee had more than 20 wonderful hampers and prizes which were drawn out on the night.

The cheque in the photo says €5,890 but, since then, further donations have been received, and the total amount raised is €5,950. The monies will be spent directly upon patient welfare.

The organising committee would like to thank everyone who made the event such a great success. Once again, good people from Finner on one side right through Ballyshannon, Belleek, Rossnowlagh, Ballintra, Laghey and on to Donegal on the other side gave generously. In particular, the committee would like to thank the sponsors, who provided the amazing hampers and prizes, the ticket sellers who gave up their free time to sell the tickets and most importantly everyone who reached into their pocket to buy a ticket.

The night itself was a celebration of music, song and dance. The packed house and lively crowd enjoyed every minute. Again the committee would like to thank Brendan O'Reilly of Dicey Reilly's for the use of his facilities and Diarmaid McGee who provided the music and entertainment.
