Trek for Cash
Published: Fri, 26 Sep 2014
Newry Housing Officers, Margaret Burns and Norah Smyth, took a break earlier this year from their work with the Housing Executive to raise money for Southern Area Hospice and Cancer Focus.
Margaret and Norah flew to Malaga, Spain to participate in a mountain trek. As a result of their efforts they raised a total of £2,000. They were delighted to present the charities with £1,000 each.
“I want to thank everyone who supported us through their sponsorship of the trek. We’re delighted to have been able to benefit these deserving charities.”
Norah echoed Margaret’s comments and went on to say:
“It was the thought of being able to help these local charities which spurred us both on during the trek and helped us ignore the blisters!”
