first_imgThe residents of Inbhear Na Mara in Bundoran are this week celebrating a hugely successful fundraiser which has enabled the purchase of a new wheelchair accessible bus.Generosity from families, business and the wider community was combined over the past year to raise money for the new vehicle which will enhance the lives of the residents of the unit.A party took place at Inbhear na Mara last Sunday to welcome the new purchase. The Friends of Inbhear na Mara committee formed in April 2018 for the sole purpose of fund raising for the purchase of a bus for the ten residents of Inbhear na Mara, a residential unit for adults with an intellectual disability.The funds were raised through extremely generous donations from families of past and present residents and local businesses, support of the Parents & Friends Association, and donations from a sponsored run and Kilimanjaro climb.In addition a very successful  5K organised by staff in the unit and sponsored by local businesses, was attended in large numbers by the local community. The HSE would like to extend their thanks and appreciation to  everyone who contributed to the purchase of the new bus.  This bus will greatly enhance the lives of the residents of Inbhear na Mara.A special word of gratitude goes to the Friends of Inbhear na Mara committee , Brian McCabe, Lynda McCabe, Peggy Gallagher and Janice McNelis and staff members at Inbhear Na Mara, unit,  Martina Monaghan, Danny Tourish, Geraldine Rooney and Louise O’Grady.Community kindness funds new bus for Donegal disability centre was last modified: November 27th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
