€76,500 RAISED OVER 2021 & 2022 for CANCER CARE WEST
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, Noel Cunningham who is also a Patron of Cancer Care West. 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 2023 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.
Donegal Camino 2023 is set to be another wonderful Camino. With your help, it is our aim to exceed the 2022 donation of €50,500 to Cancer Care West Donegal. To date we have generated €76,500.
Richard Flaherty CEO, Cancer Care West, walked with the 2022 Donegal Camino, stated “We are beyond grateful for this magnificent donation of €50,500 from the Donegal Camino. In 2021 the Cancer Support Centre in Letterkenny provided support to over 250 people affected by cancer. All services are provided free of charge and we rely completely on fundraising and voluntary contributions to run the centre. This sizeable donation from the Donegal Camino will certainly bring much comfort to many of Donegal’s cancer patients and their families in the year ahead.”
