John Dalzell OBE has completed his 30th Annual Christmas Sit Out on Hill Street Newry and presents another incredible cheque for £156,046 to the Southern Area Hospice.

John, who turned 80 at Christmas, sat out on Hill Street Newry in his trailer for almost 2 weeks in the run up to Christmas as well as having his team at other locations at Fiveways, The Quays and B&Q Newry. John, who is a newly appointed Ambassador for the Southern Area Hospice has now raised an incredible £2million to date for local Hospice care.

John as always, wished to extend his thanks to each and every person who helped in any way to make this year’s Sit-Out such a success.

Hospice Fundraising Manager, Siobhan McArdle said “ I am absolutely delighted that John has reached the fantastic milestone of £2million, it truly is a testament to the many years of hard work by John and the Sit-Out Team. On behalf of everyone here at Hospice I would like to thank John and his dedicated team for everything they have done to make the Sit-Out such a success. We have always known John was a man in a million and now we can proudly say he is a man in two!”
