The Dolan Family raised €26,430 at the Charity Weekend in memory of Kathleen Dolan in Dowra on May 6 & 7.

The money was divided equally between the Oncology unit, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin and the Irish Cancer Society and the cheques were presented last week.

The charity weekend in Dowra held over the May Bank Holiday included a Four Mile Fun Run, Shave or Dye night, Piglet race and auction. Huge crowds attended the weekend and raised money.

The Dolan family wish to give sincere thanks to all who helped organise, took part and supported the charity weekend. The weekend was a great success. Big thanks especially to Nuala, Kathleen McGovern and team, Shane McKeon, Gerry McGourty and all who helped out and contributed to the final figure.
