Looking for a challenge this Summer? Then why not sign up for the annual Donard Day to tackle the highest peak in Northern Ireland which is being held on Saturday 19th August 2017 at 10am in aid of the Southern Area Hospice Services.
In previous years, the event has now raised over £25’000 for the Hospice and the 2016 event attracted over 100 participants.
This year, CRASH Services have come on board as the main sponsors of the event. Jonathan McKeown, of CRASH Services, commented; “We are delighted to be the main sponsors of this great event. We are a business with strong links to the local area and the Hospice, which was nominated by staff as one of our 2017 charity partners. Our staff look forward to taking part and helping out on the day.”
“To put an event on like this it is very much a team effort. We have been working with James McCaffrey of the Hospice to make sure the event is a success. We are providing t-shirts and refreshments for participants.”
James McCaffrey, Regional Marketing Officer of the Hospice, said: “It is great to have CRASH Services on board this year sponsoring the event and with their expertise and enthusiasm to help make it a great event, ensures Donard Day will be bigger and better this year”.
Southern Area Hospice provides their service across the entire Southern Health Trust area, including Lurgan, Newry & Mourne, Craigavon, Banbridge, Portadown, Armagh and Dungannon. With an annual fundraising target of over £2.5 million, SAHS need to raise over £250 every single hour to help people affected by terminal illness in Southern Trust Area.
