Donegal Camino 2023 Raised €82,000
The third official Donegal Camino has made its largest donation yet, €82,155, to Cancer Care West Support Services in Donegal. This brings to €157,150 the funds raised by the Peggy Stringer inspired and exclusive seven day walking festival.
The Donegal Camino took place from the 3rd to the 9th of September last, and 519 people walked the highways and by-ways of the landscape of Donegal. An average of 75 people walked per day, and each with their own personal Donegal Camino stories.
Walkers from North America, New Zealand, France, the UK and Scotland joined Irish walkers.
Cancer Care West Board Member Noel Cunningham says:
“The generosity of the people and businesses of Donegal knows no bounds, and the Donegal Camino walkers worked so hard this year to support us in making such a large and generous donation to a much needed service.”
The Donegal Camino Committee extends its deepest appreciation to its partners Go Visit Donegal, Donegal County Council, Gallaghers Bakehouse, 3D Personnel, Sendmode, Harvey’s Point, Simple Simon’s - Donegal Town, Donegal Airport and all the businesses and people who supported, donated, fundraised, volunteered and, of course, walked the 2023 Donegal Camino.
