THE committee members of North Offaly Movember (Paul, Dan, Ruth and Mark) were on hand on Saturday night last to present the funds raised to the parents of Sophie Grehan.

They knew that people had taken little Sophie to their hearts and that there were a lot of people involved in the fundraising events last November.

But they were still in awe of the generosity of people when a cheque for €89,521.00 was presented.

Family and friends gathered in Seerys Bar, Daingean to celebrate this fantastic community effort. Little Sophie's treatment is ongoing and the committee wished the family of Elaine, David, Emily and Sophie all the best for the future.
