There was a magnificent turnout for the Arklow Credit Union sponsored Glen to Glen Walk in aid of Wicklow Hospice on September 23rd.
The Glen to Glen walk, which saw many participants hike from the monastic settlement of Glendalough all the way to the rolling hills of Glenmalure, was a complete success that also saw Arklow Credit Union present the Wicklow Hospice Foundation with a €5,000 cheque.
Scores of well-prepared hikers were treated to excellent weather conditions as they made the journey from one Glen to the other in one of the latest fundraising events on behalf of the Wicklow Hospice.
The new 15-bedroom Wicklow Hospice is set to be completed in 2019 after construction began last June.
The Wicklow Hospice Foundation have been tirelessly advocating and raising money for the construction of the much-needed facilities on a site at Magheramore, just outside of Wicklow Town.
The foundation thanked everyone who has supported their cause,”Without your involvement and generosity, we would not be able to aim high and reach our potential goals; thank you again for your generous and continuous support.”
