Well done ladies!

Over €56,000 has been raised by 300 brave women who did a topless strip and dip for Breast Cancer in Inishowen.

Busloads of enthusiastic ladies headed to Stroove Beach at Greencastle on a wet and chilly Friday night at the end of August to take part in the topless challenge. Together, the women braved the elements and ran into the sea for the liberating celebration – all for three great causes.

The final total was revealed tonight at a party in Rosato’s Bar in Moville. Organisers Katrina Doherty, a teacher from Moville, and Donegal Hospice nurse Mary McLaughlin were delighted to reveal the final amount.

The amazing €56,452.57 will be split between the Breast Cancer Centre in Letterkenny, Cancer Care West and the Breast Cancer Ireland Schools Outreach Programme – supporting local people and local health education programmes.
