Annacurra notes week October 18th

Annacurra

Thank you

I wish to thank each and every one of you for your donations. 

This fundraiser has meant so much to me and I am literally gobsmacked at how much has been raised by the Sheep Sale in Carnew Mart.

I Want thank the mart and all its staff on the day for the huge effort they put in, each and every farmer who donated sheep, private donations and the Gofundme account. Thank you to the other Marts for their donations. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. 

All of the monies are going directly to The St James hospital’s Lymphoma and Haematology Unit. It will help them in furthering improvements in treatment for their patients and in research for new drugs to fight cancer in all. 

The total raised is in excess of €73,000. The Gofundme account will be closing shortly. 

Words cannot express my gratitude and the thanks from my wider family, neighbours and friends. Thank you all so very much. 

Richie.
