Cookstown Textile Recyclers present €22,149 to Galway Hospice

Clothes recycling has proven to be a runaway fundraising success for Galway Hospice, with receipt of a further cheque for €22,149 from Cookstown Textile Recyclers.  This was raised from clothes recycling in 2011.  Thanks to everyone who recycled their clothes at the Cookstown Clothes Recycling Banks throughout Galway city and county last year (see list of locations below).  

Cookstown Textile Recyclers are proud supporters of Galway Hospice, and since 2006 they have donated the amazing total of €107,919 to Galway Hospice which they raised through the Textile Recycling Banks they operate in association with Galway County Council. 

Pictured are Billy Conway (Cookstown Textile Recyclers) presenting the 2011 proceeds to Fiona McKinnon (Galway Hospice).  

Thanks to Billy and his team at Cookstown Textile Recyclers for their loyalty and support over the years.

This fundraising venture is tremendously important for Galway Hospice, so we ask all of our supporters to bring their unwanted clothes to these particular recycling banks, which directly benefit Galway Hospice.
