On Thursday last, Karol McNern presented a cheque for €8,548 to North West Hospice which he and his team raised through his remarkable 1,200km-plus charity cycle from Malin2Mizen2Malin held back in July.
It was one of three cheques accepted by Ursula Smullen, Fundraising and Events Coordinator with North West Hospice at a presentation event in Ballyshannon.

Cheques to a total value of €9,406.50 were handed over to the North West Hospice.
A cheque for €110 was presented by Seán and Eoghan McCaffrey which they raised by selling vegetables and a cheque for €756.50 was also accepted from Deirdre Mulligan, President, Bundoran Golf Club, the proceeds of an event she held for North West Hospice.
Hats off to Karol and all who supported him on his epic journey from Malin to Mizen and back again. Karol did his nonstop cycle in July in memory of his late mother Sheila, a truly incredible effort.
Well done also to Seán and Eoghan McCaffrey and to Deirdre Mulligan for their fundraising efforts.
As Ursula Smullen said "every cent matters".
