TWO DONEGAL men, who completed four half marathons in the space of four days last month handed over the proceeds of their endeavours to the Good and New cancer charity shop today.
St Johnston men Paul Duddy and Ciaran Bovaird presented over €3,000 to the Good and New representatives.

The Good and New shop helps to fund the Donegal-Galway Cancer Bus.
Duddy, a former League of Ireland referee, and Bovaird, who has played for and managed Kildrum Tigers, completed the gruelling Quadrathon from August 11-14 last, taking in four separate events: the Kinnego Marathon, the Malin Marathon, the Mamore Marathon and the Muff Marathon.[adrotate group=”38″]

The Donegal-Galway Cancer Bus has been running for the last seven years, transporting patients for treatment in Galway and returning again at the end of each week.
Earlier this year, a new 33-seater bus was purchased and costs €1,000 per week to run.
“We are dependent on the people of Donegal to fundraise for the bus, which is for the cancer patients in Donegal,” said Lynne McDevitt.
“We are so grateful and thankful for these men doing the likes of this to support Donegal’s cancer patients. We really cannot thank them enough.”Tags:
