A charity drive in memory of Fiona Carr has successfully raised €12052.34 for two local causes.

Friends and family honoured the wishes of the much-loved Letterkenny woman by holding a unique raffle to give away her Mini Cooper and raise money for Donegal Hospice and the Oncology Department in Letterkenny University Hospital.

The inspirational Fiona passed away on July 12th after a long battle with cancer.

A month after her death, a GoFundMe page was set up to collect donations for the Oncology department, where Fiona spent a lot of time throughout her illness, and the Donegal Hospice, where she spent her last month before her passing.

Donators were then entered into a draw to win Fiona’s red and white Mini Cooper. Kate Gibson was drawn as the winner and officially presented with her keys.
