Slane walkers raise €9,000 for charities

Community news

Big hearted Slane walkers got their moment in the sun recently when they handed over three cheques to worthy causes.

The group walked from Carrick on Shannon to Slane over three days in late August.

They had some serious collections as part of the event and they were delighted to hand over €3,000 each at an event in the Boyne Valley Inn to the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre, which serves the entire region, SOSAD Ireland, and Slane Tidy Towns.

The group walked 130km over the few days and were delighted with the support they got.

And it's believed some have gone into training already for next August!
