A major tractor run in memory of the late Elaine McGlinchey has raised a fantastic €14,000 for the Sperrin Unit at Altnagelvin Hospital.

Elaine McGlinchey (née Porter) was a loving and caring lady from Killygordan who passed away last November.

The tractor run took place in memory of Elaine in July, with over 500 vehicles turning out for the cause.

A fantastic €14,373.51 was raised from the event. The total sum was recently donated to staff at the Altnagelvin cancer treatment centre, where Elaine received outstanding care during her illness.

Elaine’s family and friends have thanked everyone who helped them raise such a great amount.

John and JJ McGlinchey presenting a cheque for €14,373.51 raised at the Elaine McGlinchey Memorial Tractor Run to Dr Lucy Geller, Sperrin Unit, Altnagelvin Hospital also included members of staff from the unit and the organising committee of the tractor run.
