Marie Curie & Connect Sponsored Event @ 1st Oct 2012

Seven people from Connect Telecom took to the water at the start of September along with Marie Curie Nurse Tracey Wiley and Marie Curie Corporate Development Manager Anne Hannan, under the expert instruction of Pro wakeboarder and Irish Masters Champion Jonny Crawford in a sponsored wakeboarding event in aid of Marie Curie. After the teamís attempts at the Meteor Waterski Club, Jonny, who is sponsored by Connect Telecom, showed how itís done!
A total of £1,000 was raised for Marie Curie which will go directly towards cancer care in Northern Ireland. Just £20 of this will provide one hour of nursing care to the terminally ill in their own home or contribute towards the running and provision of specialist care at the purpose-built Marie Curie Hospice in Belfast, which requires £3,561 per day to run.
Connect Telecom would like to thank Meteor Water Ski Club for the use of their boat and facilities, Jonny Crawford for his time and expert training and determination to get everyone up on the water, and Marie Curie nurse Tracey Wiley for her support and involvement for such an important cause.
