Associated Charities for the 2015 Lough 5
Termonmaguirc Friendly Care Group: Which is based in the parish;
Termonmaguirc Cancer Care Group: Which is based in the parish; and
The Mary Anderson Foundation: Setup by Philip Anderson in memory of his late wife, who passed away in November 2014, its aim is to support local causes relating to child welfare, education and care giving. We have chosen this second organisation as Philip has been running a marathon a week since the beginning of the year in Mary’s memory and has chosen to run his final marathon of the year at this event. So it will be a truly historic and emotive occasion.
