An extremely generous donation of €40,500 was recently presented to the Intensive Care Unit and the Patient Comfort Fund at University Hospital Galway, raised in memory of the late Mary Kenny.

In addition to that, a further €5,000 was donated to Strange Boat Donor Foundation, The National Organ Donor Commemorative Garden, along with €2,000 being donated to Quest Brain Injury Services in Galway.

The cheque was presented by John and Isabelle Kenny, Mary's husband and daughter.

They raised the all important funds through a host of activities, which included a GoFundMe page, a coffee morning at the Willow Café at Woodford Garden Centre.

They also held an evening of music in Carton House Farm, as well as a raffle and spot prizes sponsored by local businesses. But the biggest event was when over 20 very brave individuals ‘Jumped for Mary’ by participating in a skydive last August.
