ladies and their tractors have raised £12,800 for an ovarian
cancer charity during a road run organised in memory of a
Hillsborough woman who died of the 'silent killer'.
The run which took place in June was
organised by friends and family of the late Mrs. Helen Megarry
who put up a courageous battle before tragically succumbing to
the illness last year.
It was followed by a barbeque attended by 300
people and the proceeds have now been presented to the Northern
Ireland based organisation 'Angels of Hope.
This charity's aims are as follows: to raise
awareness of ovarian cancer; improve knowledge among the general
public and the medical profession; fund vital research and
provide a link between sufferers, survivors
The organisers of the road run have thanked
everyone who helped raise what they described as an amazing
amount of money' including the ladies who did the driving; the
sponsors of the barbeque and auction; the people who attended
the event and everyone who helped in any way.
