A cheque for £11,419.90 was recently presented to James McCaffery of the Fundraising Department of Southern Area Hospice Services by Camlough woman Joanne Sands and her daughter Seana.

The money was raised by the two ladies after they participated in and completed the recent 26.2 miles New York Marathon along with their brother Oliver.



It was a first marathon for the Camlough mother and daughter while Oliver completed his tenth marathon.

Both they and Oliver, who lives in New York, said that the Marathon was a challenging but rewarding experience.



Thanking all who had sponsored and supported them in their Hospice fund raising events, Joanne said, “We had great support from many family and friends including our running/walking friends, Rita, Margaret and Ashling and the Hospice Fundraising Department.

She added, “Myself and Seana would especially like to thank all who sponsored us in our various fundraising initiatives. The £11,419.90 raised was a fantastic amount.”
