The staff and customers of Tesco in Carrick-on-Shannon recently raised €1,500 for North West Hospice.
The much needed funds were raised through the Christmas Raffle organised by staff at the Carrick-on-Shannon store. Winners of the raffle were Dermot O’Hara from Boyle, Bernie Dockery from Annaduff and Catherine Clancy from Drumkeerin.
Accepting the cheque from Tesco staff recently, Maeve Butler, Community Relations Co-ordinator with North West Hospice said “We are extremely grateful to the staff of Tesco in Carrick-on-Shannon for their support and for taking the initiative in organising this raffle. Our sincere thanks also goes to the people of the community who supported the raffle and gave so generously. We have to raise EUR1million every year through voluntary contributions, donations and fundraising events to keep our palliative care services in operation. This is a huge task and we can only do it through the generosity of local communities like Carrick-on-Shannon. We greatly appreciate your support”.
North West Hospice is dedicated to helping people who are living with life-limiting illness in Sligo, Leitrim, South Donegal and West Cavan to improve their quality of life through the provision of consultant-led specialist palliative care.
