Maeve’s single raises funds

Annaclone singer Maeve Farrell has helped raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Unit Charity with the release of her single ‘Light in the Darkness – Gospel Medley’.

Sales of the single - still available on i-Tunes - have brought in £768.66 for Team Emily’s Fund in aid of the CCUC.

The singer thanked all who bought the single and those who gave donations at Sean Wallace Entertainments and other concerts she performed at,

Thanks also went to Longstone GAA club, for its donation, and to outlets who sold the single, among them Lisliggan Stores, Annaclone, Walsh’s Newsagents, Banbridge and Milestone, Rathfriland.

The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity -instrumental in setting up the Children’s Cancer Unit at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children - hopes to raise £1 million this year to extend the haematology unit for children, with infections, who require isolation rooms.

Maeve will be presenting the money, along with £1,320 raised at her dad’s birthday party, during the March 10 launch in Banbridge’s Bannville hotel of her debut album, ‘Crossroads’,
