Galway daily news Salthill Rotary Club raises €1000 for children's cancer support

The Salthill Rotary Club recently presented Hand in Hand children’s cancer support charity with €1,000 raised to help their efforts on behalf of families of children with cancer.

The money for this cancer support was was raised by the Salthill rotarians through the February and March ‘Kick the Wall’ collections down by the Promenade.

Back in 2012 the Salthill Rotary Club installed a permanent collection point on the promenade with the support of Galway city council.

People give the limestone marker, which bears the inscription ‘Small Change, Big Impact’, a kick and hopefully drop off some change while they’re there.

Michael O’Hare, President of the Salthill Rotary Club, recently presented the collected monies to Dr Michael Coughlan and Laura Bromley from Hand in Hand.

Hand in Hand is a non-profit organisation which provides the families of children with cancer with much-needed practical support.

It provides families with practical support through childcare, domestic cleaning and laundry services, and family meals so they can focus on spending more time with their kids in their time of need.

Money gathered from the April collection box is going to the Irish Kidney Association support services in Galway.
