To celebrate his 40th birthday, Conor McFlynn decided to arrange a fundraiser for charity. He decided to raise much needed funds for Marie Curie in memory of his late mother Mary who passed away in May. Mary and the McFlynn family received specialist, expert care and support during the extremely difficult lockdown period from these wonderful nurses. Every five minutes, someone in the U.K. and N.Ireland dies without getting the care and support they need at the end of their life. The charity relies solely on charitable contributions and every little helps and makes an impact on someone’s life.
Conor was overwhelmed by the fantastic response to his two-week social media campaign using both the Facebook and Justgiving platforms. He received over 230 donations from friends, family and staff at Omagh CBS where he works as a PE teacher, donations came in from far and wide through various connections in countries as far off as Australia, South Africa, USA and Canada; he would like to express his gratitude and thanks to everyone who kindly and generously contributed to raising a sum of £5200.
Sheena Havlin is the Marie Curie fundraising manager who will organise that the money is allocated to the health care trusts in N.Ireland, ensuring loved ones in the local area continue to benefit from this wonderfully special charity.
