HANDING over £31,500 to ten different charities was something that Caring Caretaker Davy Boyle didn’t think he’d be doing this year after his health scare.
But, last Monday night, Davy made presentations to his 2013 charities, and said a special thank you to the public and his volunteers who have helped him raise the magnificent sum.
The well-known Coleraine man had to call on a little help from his friends, who sat in for him during his annual sit out - the event that raises most money for his charities.
“If it hadn’t been for my helpers I would’ve been sitting with £12,000 in my pot for the year. I can’t thank the public and those who helped out in any way enough. I am very humbled.”
Last Monday night Davy said a special thank you Rev Robert McMullan, Dennis McNeill and Darren Pollock for their continued help and support.
Davy has selected the following charities for 2014: Children’s Hearbeat Trust, Marie Curie Cancer Care, The Blind Centre, Causeway Wheelers, N.D.C.S. for deaf children, Pheonix A.D,H.D, Palliative Care, Robinson Hospital Ballymoney and Help Wee Oliver walk.
And Davy has already a few fundraisers organsed for 2014 - his annual golf day will take place at Castlerock Golf Club on Friday, May 2 and his ‘Jail and Bail’ will be on Saturday, June 14.
