A Castlebar woman, who won €1,000 in prize money for selling the most tickets in the recent Gorta raffle, has decided to donate her winnings to charity.
Nina Tunney from Castlebar won the €1,000 in prize-money for efforts in selling the most tickets in the recent Gorta raffle.
Nina, who has lived in Castlebar for the last 25 years, has vowed to give her prize-money back to charitable causes.
Well-known local woman Nina is also due to run another fundraising event for Gorta in SuperValu, Castlebar in the run-up to Christmas.
The overall winner of the Gorta raffle received a total prize of €5,000 with second and third prizes set at €2,000 and €1,000 respectively.
The prize fund of the raffle was derived wholly from tickets sales and the money raised will go directly towards Gorta’s overseas development projects.
