Very Successful Fundraiser – Thanks to Sean Lavery
Sean Lavery organised a fundraising night which took place on Valentine’s Night in the Seagoe Hotel in Portadown, attended by 360 people.
Compere on the night was ex St Paul’s Lurgan teacher, Jimmy Smyth who entertained the crowd throughout. Sean was rightfully delighted with the response from all concerned and really made his two months hard work worthwhile.
Sean said “separate draws on the night, a lucky dip, a grand draw and with money made on tickets came to a total of £9,462. Since Saturday night the total has risen again with a steady flow of donations still coming in bringing it over the £10,000 mark which is helped by my just giving page that is www.justgiving.com/Sean-Lavery. It has over £700 pound on it. The generosity of people is amazing and I am still overwhelmed by it all”.
“The money that is raised will all be used to help people like myself during the hard times of liver transplant journey plus buy equipment that can only help people be diagnosed quicker, that will save a lot of lives. By all of this I hope to raise awareness of the RVH Liver Support Group and the importance of the Organ Donor Register that for me saved my life and has given me a life with my family again that I nearly lost” Sean went on.
Sharon Millen and Kay Duffy were at the function representing the charity and they too were struck by amazement of the amount raised.
