Sponsored Walk – thanks to all

Hospice / Community Council Sponsored Walk

A total of €6260 (after expenses) was raised by the recent sponsored walk in joint aid of North Wexford Hospice and the local Askamore Community Council. Both organisations are extremely grateful to all concerned – walkers, sponsors, helpers, first-aiders, bus drivers – for helping to raise this significant sum of money. A cheque for €3,130 for North Wexford Hospice will be presented during the Askamore Field Day this Sunday in Le Chéile Park, Askamore.

It is part of the County Wexford Hospice Home Care Team Ltd, which was set up in 1990. It relies on the generous support of the public and all monies raised are used for the sole purpose of the expenses of the nurses and their home-care visits. The demand on the service has increased over the past 24 years and in 2012 the 5 nurses performed over 5000 home visits. Please support this worthy cause, and your local community.
