Donegal dental nurse Eileen McGlinchey has donated over €1,000 to Donegal Hospice.

Earlier this year, Eileen launched an innovative fundraiser in aid of the local charity.

She came up with the idea to sell dental floss on a keyring to encourage children and adults alike to get into the habit of flossing, with the proceeds going towards charity.

On the 5th of December, Eileen presented €1003.44 to Donegal Hospice nurse Joy Caroll.

Eileen has thanked all the businesses across the Northwest who stocked the flossers and to everyone who supported the initiative.
