Ballygar Truckin (Copy)Galway Hospice was recently presented with a cheque for €6,000 by members of the ‘Ballygar Truckin’ organising committee, raised through the super group’s annual fundraising event, ‘Ballygar Truckin’. This year’s event included a reversing competition and a truck and tractor run, as well as musical entertainment, face painting and a barbeque.

Galway Hospice greatly appreciates the continued support of the organising committee of this event, together with all of the event’s participants and supporters.
