Boyle man raises over €500 for good causes

Boyle man, David McKenna, recently raised over €500 for the Irish Hospice Foundation’s Nurses for Night Care and the Mater Foundation after he completed two charity events locally.

David completed 123.55 miles as part of the 100 Miles in October for the Irish Hospice Foundation, raising €433. Not content with that mammoth effort, he then took part in the ‘Dickie Dip’ at Lough Key Forest Park last Saturday and raised €119 for the Mater Foundation while raising awareness of prostate and testicular cancer in the process.

David thanked all of his sponsors for both events including Flahavan’s Porridge, McDonald’s of Sligo, and his supporters and friends who supported him in filling 30 shoeboxes as part of the Team Hope Christmas Appeal recently.
