Damien’s brother Mark explained “As I have an interest in cycling we decided it would be nice to hold a leisure cycle in memory of Damien and at the same time raising money for the local children’s ward at Letterkenny University Hospital.“The cycle takes place September/October each year since then and is aimed at all level of cyclists.It has gone from strength to strength since 2011 and last year we had over 100 riders taking part.”The Hunter family own the well-known LK Bikes and this gave the company the chance to donate the money raised to help the kids of children’s ward.And in recent days the fruits of the latest cycle in memory of Damien made their way to the hospital. Among the treasure-chest of goodies were toys, games, dvd players, dvds and loads of clothes, pjamas, dummies and even toothbrushes!“It was a massive success and just a great feeling to hand it over all the supplies to the staff nurses,” added Mark. DAMIEN’S MEMORY LIVES ON WITH WONDERFUL DONATION TO CHILDREN’S WARD was last modified: February 3rd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:children’s wardcycleDamien HunterLKBikeslast_img read more
