Successful cycle/walk raises £4,000

August 3, 2010

The Cullyhanna-based Ciaran Caraher Memorial Fund committee held a fundraising cycle and walk in the village last weekend. The event was organised to raise money for the Accident and Emergency unit in Daisy Hill Hospital.

More than seventy people took part with some participating in the 10 mile cycle while others completed the six mile walk.

The committee takes this opportunity to thank everyone who took part or who helped out in any way.  The fantastic sum of £4,010 sterling was raised through donations and sponsorship.
