Liz Doyle was a welcome visitor to the Wicklow Cancer Support office as she arrived bearing gifts.

Liz organised an evening 5k family fun walk, jog or run which took place at the beginning of August in Wicklow town, starting from Leitrim Place on the seafront. The event was sponsored by Tiles Direct Ashford and raised €3,404 for Wicklow Cancer Support. Liz dropped into the head office last week and presented a cheque from the proceeds raised to Eileen Earls, Chairperson of Wicklow Cancer Support.

Eileen said: 'we were delighted to welcome Liz and her brilliant helpers into the centre to present their cheque. Thanks to all who supported this fundraiser. It was a beautiful family and community night and was so well organised. To all those who helped in any way we appreciate your support'.
