Northern Ireland Hospice “Jumps into Jingle” with GAA star Niall Morgan

02 December 2021

Tyrone All-Ireland winner Niall Morgan has come on board as an official Ambassador of Northern Ireland Hospice and Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice

Speaking about his new appointment, Niall said:

“I was honoured to be approached by Northern Ireland Hospice to become an Ambassador. The Hospice plays an important role in our local communities, delivering specialist palliative care not only in their amazing state-of-the-art in-patient units, but in many homes across Northern Ireland too.

I think almost everyone has been touched by the Hospice and the incredible work that they do, and I’m so happy to come on board and get involved in Jingle all the Way. I can’t wait to take part in the Jingle 5k and hope to see lots of people in Belfast dusting off their Santa hats and joining in the fun.”

Mary McCall, Director at Hospice, added:

“We’re absolutely delighted that Niall has come on board as an official Hospice Ambassador. Niall brings high energy and passion to everything he does, and we have no doubt that he will inspire and motivate many GAA fans to fundraise and support us.

Whether you take part in our virtual Jingle 5k/10k race, host a Jingle Jumper Day with friends or family, or take on the Jingle Box Challenge, your support will help ensure we can continue to do what we do best and care for local people in your community who need it most.”

Now in its fifth year, Jingle All the Way is a community fundraising campaign that encourages businesses, schools, and churches across Northern Ireland to help raise much-needed funds for Hospice throughout the festive period.

The virtual Jingle 5k/10k race which Niall Morgan is participating in will take place on Sunday 5 December. To sign-up, join the Jingle and find out more fun fundraising ideas, visit: nihospice.org/jingle.
