Marie Curie are £865 better off this month thanks to the personal efforts of Davin Quinn, store director, Specsavers in Antrim.

Swims past target

Davin’s goal was to raise £500 for the local charity but friends and customers pulled out all the stops and his original target was smashed with an incredible £865 raised.

Marie Curie’s valuable work

Marie Curie gives people with all terminal illnesses the choice to die at home. The nurses provide them and their families with free hands-on care and emotional support.

Thanks to all my sponsors

Davin said: ‘I was really hoping to complete the 200 lengths in under two hours and was absolutely delighted with my time of one hour and 54 minutes.

The fantastic support from all my sponsors really encouraged me and I would like to thank everyone for their generosity. This money will really help Marie Curie’s valuable work in the Antrim area.’
