Donegal painter Kevin Sharkey has donated a painting valued at €5,200 for auction at the upcoming North West Breast Cancer Charity Ball.

The painting, titled Friends Forever will be auctioned at this year’s ball to raise funds to support research into breast cancer taking place at Letterkenny University Hospital.

Funds raised at the ball also support an outreach programme for patients following treatment for breast cancer and other patient comfort items.
