Limavady actor Peter Mitchell is backing an innovative fundraising campaign that aims to help people who are disabled.

Derry group Hoist Away is planning holiday accommodation with a difference in Inishowen and the former Leeds United football urged people to donate one pound.

“I am truly inspired by what Hoist Away are setting out to do. I believe so much more needs to be done to help people who are disabled, who rely on others throughout their day-to-day life. The Culdaff Cabin is genius,” said Peter. “It is a not for profit enterprise, which will help people who need to get away and just forget about their daily lives. I believe that our communities should come together and help get this off the ground.

“There are people out there who have dedicated their lives to helping their family members who struggle with the simple things in life. It can be hard and it can be exhausting. The Culdaff Cabin will provide an escape route.

“Families can go to Donegal and not worry about accessibility. Everything will be provided, including hoists, shower chairs and grab rails. The Culdaff Cabin will be the first of its kind in the whole of Ireland, North and South of the border. I would just like to ask everyone to please donate one pound. Let’s get Hoist Away’s Pound Appeal for the Culdaff Cabin up and running and let’s help people who are in need this specialist holiday accommodation.”
