Family charity quiz
Highland Radio’s Donal Kavanagh is hosting a family fun charity quiz in the Mount Errigal Hotel on Easter Monday from 3 to 6 p.m. It is open to all age groups so come along and join in a bit of craic and at the same time support a charity that is raising money to purchase an OCT machine for Letterkenny Hospital’s Ophthalmic eye clinic. ‘Save our Sight Donegal’ in conjunction with the Diabetic Federation are fundraising for the North West 10k and are working towards acquiring the machine which detects fluid at the back of the eye, aids in the diagnosis and follow up of post laser and injection treatment in diabetic patients and those with aged related macular degeneration. Having the machine would allow for early detection, treatment and prevention of blindness.
