Well done to all the Frylite team in Strabane who raised £686.40 through a breakfast morning held on 8th February 2018 for local search and rescue group Strabane Community Rescue Service, who were involved in the search for Mrs Lesley McHugh.
Her son Damien Mc Hugh is pictured presenting the cheque to Ivan Barr treasurer of Strabane Community Rescue Service.
A big thanks to all Frylite staff who carried out many fund raising activities to raise funds for Marie Curie. Marie Curie was Frylite’s dedicated charity for the past year. Over £8000 was raised via cake sale, raffles, sponsored walks, and by participating the arduous sea to summit challenge – a cycle- run duathlon plus ascent up Croagh Patrick mountain!
Sheena Havlin from Marie Curie who visited Frylite to thank staff said “This is a fantastic total. A massive well done and thank you to all involved. The money raised covers the cost for over 400 hours of nursing care in the local community”
