Marathon runners raise €10k for hospice
WICKLOW athletes offered admirable support for Wicklow Hospice this year as 34 runners completed the Dublin City Marathon in aid of the project. A whopping €10,000 was raised. Wicklow Hospice Foundation extends sincere thanks to the athletes for their wonderful efforts and the massive training they put in ahead of the event.
The next big hospice fundraiser is the popular Strictly Come Dancing which takes place at the Arklow Bay Hotel on Saturday, November 24, at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available from the venue, from Avondale Sports, by contacting Wicklow Hospice administrator Sinead at 0870954137, or online though www. wicklowhospice.ie.
