Donegal Camino Ireland - Charity Fundraising for Cancer Care West 2023

We look forward to walking with you.



Peggy Stringer founded the Donegal Camino in 2020 with her chosen charity, Cancer Care West Services in Donegal. In 2021 she was joined by former Donegal Persons of the Year, Deirdre McGlone former owner of Harvey’s Point and  Hotelier and TV Personality and Director  of Cancer Care West,  Noel Cunningham who’ve strategically grown the 7 day walking festival with a voluntary committee. Both the Donegal Camino and our Donation to Cancer Care West has grown 100% year on year and we hope to achieve the same in 2024 with your help.

We are so grateful to everyone who has walked with us thus far, and to all our funding partners, as well as those who have made anonymous donations.

The 2024 Donegal Camino is set to be another inspiring Camino. With your help, it is our aim to exceed the 2023 donation of €82,155 to Cancer Care West Donegal. To date we have generated €160,000.

Richard Flaherty CEO, Cancer Care West, walked with the 2022 Donegal Camino and Annette Hassett Operations Manager walked in 2023.”The Donegal Camino is now our biggest fundraiser supporting our Donegal services. We thank everyone for the fantastic success of the event in 2023. We know how difficult fundraising is currently and the amount of effort & time that is required to reach this figure and we are extremely grateful for all your individual contributions. We are very proud of our centre in Donegal and we have important plans to increase the range of services provided in the centre in 2024 to meet the ever-increasing demands. These funds are crucial to allow us to do all of this,” says Richard Flaherty.
