The IMNDA would like to express an enormous thank you to everyone involved with a Charity Soccer Match on Saturday 23rd October at the Finn Valley Centre in Ballybofey, Co Donegal between Blane Rovers and Border Celtic to raise money for MND and other local charities. The amount of money raised was €10,000 euros and £14,000 sterling. Four charities were donated to as follows: –
- MND Association NI – £10,000 sterling – Funds to be used for research to help get a cure
- Castlederg Terminally Ill Fund – £4,000 sterling
- Irish MND Association – €8,050 euros – Funds to be used for research to help get a cure
- Donegal Hospice – €2,000 euros
This is a truly monumental effort and we cannot thank you all enough, well done!!!
