Following local marathon runner Kevin Gallagher’s 12 Marathon Days of Christmas held at the Buttercrane Shopping Centre in Newry just before Christmas, proceeds from the event were handed out to six local charities. Which included ourselves.

Commenting on the achievement Kevin said “I’d like to say a massive thanks to everyone that helped with the 12 Marathon Days of Christmas. To all my family and friends and to the host of the event and all the staff at the Buttercrane, to KMS Sports for the treadmill as well as all the runners from all the running clubs in the area. Newry City Runners and the Slieve Gullion Runners for their great support. To all the local media for their great support.”
