Kathleen in countdown to fundraiser

Dromore womanKathleen Gracey is counting down to her annual fundraising event in aid of the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.

This year’s car boot sale, poultry fair and family fun day will be Kathleen’s 11th since she first threw open the ground at her Villawood Road Home to raise money for the Hospice.

Between the proceeds of the main event and a number of associated fundraisers , she has to date gathered up some £15,500 for her chosen charity.

This year’s event will take place as usual at Kathleen’s home, 32 Villawood Road, Dromore, on Saturday, May 2.

It will run from 10am-3pm, with the usual refreshments available.

Cars cost £5 and vans £10, while admission to the general public is free of charge.

As has been the case from the very outset, Kathleen has no fundraising target in mind.

This year, as every other, she hopes to raise simply as much as she can.

An associated sponsored walk at Villawood Road, also in aid of the NI Hospice, is planned for the end of May, with more details available nearer the time,
