Galway Hospice was recently presented with a cheque for €5,000, being the proceeds raised through the Corribdale Pony Show and Country Fair which took place last August. Organised by the Corribdale Pony Show and Country Fair committee, this very popular event raised €5,000 each for Galway Hospice and Cancer Care West.

Committee members and those who volunteered their time in support of the event attended the cheque presentation in the Lake House in Oughterard.  Cllr. Seamus Walsh, chairman of the Corribdale Pony Show and Country Fair committee is pictured presenting Mary Howard of Galway Hospice with the proceeds raised in aid of the Foundation.

Sincere thanks to everyone who planned, organised and co-ordinated this fundraising event in aid of two local charities. Thank you also to the volunteers who gave their time in support of the undertaking. Well done everyone!

Every year, Galway Hospice must raise €1.8 million to support the provision of Hospice Home Care, Day Care and Bereavement Support services throughout Galway city and county. Galway Hospice depends hugely on fundraising events like this one to reach this annual target. Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
