Jennie McCarron from Raphoe had a unique birthday request in her 90th year which will help many others in the community.
Two of Donegal’s favourite charities – Donegal Hospice and Pieta House – received a timely boost this week thanks to a wonderful donation from generous Raphoe woman Jennie McCarron who celebrated her 90th birthday recently.
The St. Eunan’s Terrace resident Jennie (nee Devenney) was born on 14th August 1927 and was delighted to have celebrated her 90th birthday in Friels of Raphoe, surrounded by family and friends.
But when Jennie asked for no presents, her guests kindly donated €1617.40 that she decided would immediately be donated to charity.
Some of Jennie’s great-grandchildren gathered during the week to hand over cheques for €808.70 to the well-loved charities, while Jennie’s family once again extended their sincere thanks to everyone who donated.
