URSULA LANDS ON HER FEET IN EPILEPSY IRELAND FUNDRAISER
ARKLOW woman Ursula Hilliard took part in a charity parachute jump recently in aid of Epilepsy Ireland, raising €2,103 in the process.
The jump took place in Offaly and Ursula was delighted to meet with Epilepsy Ireland fundraising manager Michael Carty to present the proceeds.

The charity also provides training programmes for both health professionals and for young adults with epilepsy; actively works to improve public understanding of epilepsy and funds high quality Irish research into the condition.
Ursula extends thanks to the many Arklow businesses who sponsored her parachute jump and to her two friends who brought her to the venue in Edenderry to take part in the charity event.
