Cancer Care WestSunday 11th October
Fort Dunree helped to organise a charity cycle and walk in aid of Cancer Care West on Sunday 11th October. This was the second year of this challenge and last year over €6,000 was raised. The event was organised on behalf of popular former Fort Dunree staff member Alfie Mc Govern who received tremendous treatment and support from the facilities provided by Cancer Care West. Cancer Care West provides accommodation for families living outside of the Galway area who have a family member undergoing treatment at University Hospital Galway.
All of Cancer Care West’s services are provided at no cost to patients and their families and the charity relies heavily on voluntary fundraising and donations to meet the cost of providing these services.
Alfie said “the care and attention I received was second to none and they helped make a difficult situation a lot more manageable”.
