Nellie’s Team Presents Magnificent Cheque to Marymount University Hospice

Following  “D’Outback 5k Fundraising Walk with a Twist” on 5th August 2012 in aid of Marymount University Hospice, Cork an amazing cheque of €5,000.50 was presented in “D’Outback” Bar, Kilcorney on Friday evening, 31st August.    Enormous credit is due to Nellie and Conor and their superbly dedicated team.   Pictured from left:  Cáit McCarthy (representing Marymount University Hospice), Conor Linehan (Proprietor “D’Outback” Bar), Nellie Healy (Coordinator of the very successful event) and Olan Buckley.   (S.R.)

A very large happy group of people attended the impressive presentation.   Refreshments were served and wonderful music, singing and chat ensured a truly marvellous occasion.   Special certificates and presentations were made to a number of people including Steven Condon who was the youngest to walk backwards for the full 5k event.   We recorded some interviews for LTV2 during which Nellie thanked all who had been so very generous, all who had participated and all the many business sponsors who donated prizes.    Sincere congratulations to All on such an inspiring, novel and most memorable project from which the benefits to Marymount University Hospice are upliftingly significant.   (S.R.)
