Thanks are extended to everyone who took part or supported the event in any way.

On Saturday 18th August 2018, 84 participants took part in Donard Day for Southern Area Hospice Services which is run in association with main sponsors, CRASH Services.

The weather was kind and a great day was had by all with a fantastic total of £12,214.71 raised for Southern Area Hospice Services to date, with money still coming in.

Southern Area Hospice Services would sincerely like to thank everyone who supported the event in any way, in particular CRASH Services who so kindly came on board as main sponsors for the event for the second year in a row, helping with the organisation of the event as well as providing t-shirts and very welcome post walk refreshments for participants in Hugh McCanns.

Eadaoin McCann, from CRASH Services commented, “We were delighted to be part of the Donard Day team again this year and to work closely with the Hospice. It was an honour to present an amazing amount of over £12k to the Hospice raised from registration and sponsorship monies. I would like to thank everyone who took part in what turned out to be a great event but tough to get to the top!”

Tony McKeown, of CRASH Services added, “I also would like to thank Hugh McCann’s Bar and Restaurant, Newcastle who provided some well-deserved tea, coffee, soup and sandwiches for participants coming down off the mountain.”

Thanks are also extended to everyone who took part in the walk to help raise much needed funds for Southern Area Hospice Services.
