Nine team members from SPAR Limavady recently completed a sponsored walk, covering a total of 100 miles in August.

The team raised over £2,250 for local charity, Foyle Hospice.

Foyle Hospice is a charity which provides specialist palliative care and support to patients, carers and their families. The running of the Hospice relies on donations and fundraising to enable staff to continue providing their specialist care.

Barbara Steele, customer advisor, at SPAR Limavady, commented, “We wanted to fundraise for this charity as it is close to our hearts here at the store. A number of our team have family or friends who have received care in Foyle Hospice, so we wanted to show our appreciation for the hospice and wonderful staff who work there.

“Our community representative, Margaret Cunning, also completed a sponsored silence in aid of the charity earlier in the year, raising £400.”
