The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has joined Coleraine’s Caring Caretaker as he continues his latest fundraising charity walk.
Davy Boyle has set himself a challenge to complete 1,000 miles, while raising money for Sands Northern Ireland and the Kidney Research Fund NI.
This week, Councillor Ivor Wallace met up with him for a leisurely stroll to Castleroe.
Speaking afterwards, the Mayor said: “Davy Boyle’s charity work is an inspiration to all of us and I was very pleased to accompany him on such a beautiful morning as he racks up the miles towards his target.
“Davy has been raising money since the 1990s and in that time he has raised over £700,000 which is a truly phenomenal total which has helped many organisations.
“He’s showing no signs of slowing down and after the success of last year’s 600-mile walk, he has now decided to go even further.
“If you see him out and about please consider making a small donation in his yellow box or visit his online page – I know he will be very grateful.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Davy for all he has achieved through the years and I wish him continued success with his fundraising efforts," added the mayor.
