A FAMILY has smashed its fundraising target for the DGH where their dad is battling Covid.

James Mckeown set a target of £300 and he has so far raised more than £1300.

The family want to say a huge thank you to the 46 people who have donated.

There is still time to pledge your money.

He said: “My dad has been in ICU for the past four weeks days fighting Covid.

“As a thank you to the ICU staff for their hard work and dedication. I want to be able to give something back to these amazing people. With this in mind I’m asking for your help and support.

I’m looking for donations. I can then liase with the staff in ICU, and ask them what they would like and need to make their long shifts more managable.

“Please consider giving to the people who are giving their EVERYTHING to keep us safe.”
