Relay for Life Donegal 2014 will host a “People Under the Hammer Auction” at Arena 7 in Letterkenny next week, with many services on offer.

Wedding services and entertainment, bouncy castles, horse-riding lessons and dance tutoring are among services to be auctioned. The event will be held at 8.30pm, May 9th, at Arena 7, Letterkenny. Admission is free, and entertainment will be provided.

“The committee are in a position to host this auction as a result of the tremendous generosity shown by Enda Nicholls, who has made the venue available to the Relay for Life Donegal committee, and because of the great kindness conveyed by all the businesses and individuals who have offered items and services to be auctioned,” Una Black, head of corporate relationships, said. On behalf of the committee, she thanked Boyd Robinson, who will facilitate the auction, the entertainers and everyone who has assisted.

Siobhan Diver, marketing manager of Relay for Life Donegal 2014, invited all members of the Donegal community to attend “what promises to be an entertaining and eventful evening”. All proceeds will help the Irish Cancer Society fund cancer services in Donegal, as will proceeds from the May 31st-June 1st Relay for Life Donegal 2014 at LYIT

“With so many people being diagnosed with cancer in Donegal, it is essential to have funding in place that will ensure delivery of key services,” Siobhan said. Last year Relay for Life Donegal raised 320,728 euro for research. In addition, the Irish Cancer Society spent 328,225 euro on cancer services in Donegal.

“Without assistance, The Irish Cancer Society would find it impossible to provide vital services such as care to drive, nursing services, financial aid, helpline calls, counselling, survivors supporting survivors, youth programmes and cancer support centres,” she said.
