Armagh man’s 120 mile trek to raise money for Southern Hospice

An Armagh man will embark on a 120 mile walk in Spain this weekend in a bid to raise money for the Southern Area Hospice.

Stephen McCleary, chair of the Northern Men’s Sheds Network, will leave on Saturday for the week-long expedition along a stretch of the Camino de Santiago in Spain.

With just three days to go, Stephen is hoping to raise £4000 to help Southern Area Hospice and the work it does in directly supporting those living with cancer.

The city man has so far raised a fantastic sum in excess of £1,300 which will bring comfort and help provide care to those who need it most.

And Stephen has set up a Just Giving page and is urging local people to rally round in support of this fantastic cause.

He said: “Everyone knows someone living with cancer because this disease is increasing at an enormous rate.

“When a person has cancer it affects so many – their family and wide circle of friends – that is why it is so important for us to support places like the Southern Area Hospice who do so much to alleviate the suffering that cancer causes.

“Your support will make life so much easier for those living with cancer and every pound raised on my Just Giving page goes directly to those affected so click now and donate what you can afford.”

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
