THE family of the late Brian McCauley, from Irvinestown, recently presented a cheque for £7,084 to Fermanagh Friends of Marie Curie.

The funds were raised by his wife, Philomena, and son, Kevin, with both making a superb effort to fundraise in honour of Brian, who lost his battle with cancer on February 11, 2020.

He hadn’t left his bed for 42 days before his death, receiving wonderful care by local carers and eventually Marie Curie nurses during that time.

To honour Brian, and the care and attention he received, Philomena decided to walk five miles every day and son, Kevin, ran every day, for 42 consecutive days, with the pair’s fundraising efforts taking them from New Year’s Day until the first anniversary of his death on February 11, 2021.

Philomena and Kevin are pictured presented a cheque for the funds they raised to Marion Faris, Chairperson of Fermanagh Friends of Marie Curie, with Philomena and Kevin keen to express their sincere thanks to everyone who supported their fundraising efforts.

Philomena said: “It is very much appreciated, and means so much to this wonderful charity.”
