Donegal Family present cheque to University Hospital Galway

James Melly and his wife Mary from Lettermacaward, County Donegal recently visited University Hospital Galway and presented a cheque for €3,325 to the Claddagh Ward Patient Comfort Fund.

In 2015 James had been a patient at the hospital where he received chemotherapy.  James and his family wanted to show their gratitude and organised a musical evening featuring Galway band, Old Trusty. James and Mary’s son is a member of the band and in total they raised €6,650 which was donated and shared between University Hospital Galway and Letterkenny University Hospital.

Deirdre O’Halloran, Clinical Nurse Manager, Claddagh Ward, expressed her gratitude to the Melly family.
