A Claudy man is hoping to give a little something back to the Foyle Hospice by carrying out a daring act of strength and endurance - and is looking for a little help to do it.

Twenty-seven-years-old Cathal McFeely, who works at Claudy DIY is arranging to pull a lorry four miles through Claudy Village in March of next year.

He is looking to get people involved so that two teams, working in relay, can shift the mammoth lorry and in the process make a lot of money for the Hospice.

“The Hospice cared for my grandad when he was sick, a few years back, and I know they do incredible work. This just seems like a great way to do it.”

The event is due to take place on March 25 next year and the exact distance of the lorry pull is an impressive 4.3 miles.

“I’m hoping people will want to get involved. I’m looking for individuals who want to take their place in the relay team - and also am hoping local businesses will come on board to support the event.

“We will be offering advertising space on the lorry and also on the bibs of those taking part.”

Anyone who feels up for the challenge and who would like to support Foyle Hospice in this way can contact Cathal on 0772506852. Businesses who want to get involved in sponsoring the challenge can also do so on the same number.
