Derrygonnelly’s healthy initiatives helps charity

A FERMANAGH GAA club said they were “delighted” to support a local non-profit organisation with significant financial support following a number of health and wellbeing initiatives.
Over the past 12 months, Derrygonnelly Harps GFC ran a hugely successful ‘Couch to 5K’ initiative, with the aim of helping elderly members of society stay active and integrate with their peers.
The club raised £1,000 which will go towards the local branch of Cancer Connect which provides help and support to people living with the condition in Fermanagh.
“The club was delighted to present Phil McGrenaghan from Cancer Connect with a cheque for £1,000 with the money raised from health and wellbeing initiatives in 2023/2024,” said the club.
“The funds were raised through the ‘Couch to 5K’ programme, the ‘Ireland Light’s Up’ challenge and other health and wellbeing activities.
“Thank you to all our volunteers and participants who helped out with these initiatives and supported our charity partner, Cancer Connect,” they added.
Based on Forthill Road in Enniskillen, Cancer Connect is a non-profit organisation which offers help and support to people living with cancer in Fermanagh and further afield.
“Cancer Connect NI is a County Fermanagh charity, supporting and guiding those affected by cancer,” said a spokesperson.
“The Cancer Connect Centre provides information, guidance and practical support within a safe and confidential environment to individuals and their families who have been touched by cancer.”
