3,300 euro raised for robbery victim Margaret Lilly

Gretta Cheque

In excess of 3,000 euro has been raised for 96-year-old Margaret Lilly who was attacked and robbed in her home in Buncrana.

On January 6th raiders entered Ms Lilly's home and stole a considerable amount of money which was to be spent on new windows.

Ms Lilly was in hospital for a week as a result of the ordeal.

Buncrana Town Councillor Ciaran McLaughlin started a fund at the local Credit Union and now a cheque for 3,300 euro has been given to Ms Lilly.

Councillor McLaughlin says they are delighted with the response:
