Paul Dawson is from Glenties and is a fine young man. Sadly Paul suffers from a severe form of MS. The good news for Paul is that there is a successful treatment in India that would help Paul, but the cost is extreme. Good people in Glenties, Ardara, Portnoo and surrounding areas have mounted a great fundraising campaign to bring Paul to India and now they are on the last hurdle.So a special dinner dance has been organised in the Nesbitt Arms Hotel for Saturday July 29th. This is no ordinary dinner dance, there are special high quality prizes on offer to help the fund. Please come and support to give a friend a chance of a better quality life. Tickets are on sale at the Nesbitt Arms Hotel price 50 euros. This function is so important to the fund, please support. You can support Paul and follow his fundraising campaign on his facebook page.
