The Clougher Rural and Social Development Group has raised £7,500 for the Hope For Eva fundraising appeal.
In the summer the Leader reported the story of two year old Eva Pierce, who has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
The fund is to help the little girl receive treatment in the United States.
Group chairman, Gareth Gribbon, presented the cheque to Eva’s Grandfather George Stevenson.
A spokesperson for the Clougher Rural and Social Development Group said, “We would like to thank everyone who made generous donations and supported our fundraising evening. A special thanks to all those who contributed gifts for the raffle and auction. This campaign is very close to our hearts as it to help raise money for Eva Pearce who is the young granddaughter of our lodge Chaplin George Stevenson. She was diagnosed with a rare cancer of the brain at just two years old. Eva and her family will have to travel to America, so this money will go towards keeping her and her family together out in America. This total would not have been possible without the help of LOL 529 and RBP 139 who both sent out appeals to Lodges in surrounding area and a big thank you has to be given for their great response to these appeals. Both the rural and social development group and George have been greatly humbled by the response to these appeals and would once again like to say a big thanks to everyone involved.”
