Staff from the Southern Health and Social Care Trust have taken part in a sponsored walk to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity .
The event at Gosford Park was organised by Mairead Donnelly, a Family Nurse Supervisor in the Southern Trust, who will be travelling to Cambodia with Habitat for Humanity in June to volunteer on a water sanitation project.
Almost 40 people took part in total including members of the Health Visiting, School Nursing and Reablement services, and Mairead’s colleagues in Family Nurse Partnership.
Mairead said: “I would like to thank everyone for their generosity and for giving up their time to make the event such a success.
“All the money raised will go directly to Habitat for Humanity for projects including the water sanitation project I will be volunteering with during my trip in June.”
Fancea McNally, Finance and Business Manager at Habitat for Humanity Northern Ireland, said: “We really appreciate the support of the staff from the Southern Health and Social Care Trust and their friends and families.
“The funds raised will make a big difference, supporting projects that uplift families by improving their living conditions and providing a solid foundation to build a better future.”
