Brendan Quinn arrived in Manchester in his kayak after a mammoth paddle over ten days and 420km. The inspiration for Brendan’s gruelling journey was to support his sister Rita, who was recently treated for cancer at The Christie Hospital in Manchester. The monies raised will be donated to the Maggie’s Centres which provides care to cancer sufferers and to The Caroline Foundation. Brendan set a target to raise €20,000 for the two charities. One can still donate by logging on to iDonate webpage. Read a featured article in the Strabane Chronicle.
