Comedian and radio presenter, PJ Gallagher gets ready to embark on an epic 17km ‘Hill to Hill’ challenge to launch the #UpTheHill2021 campaign for the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.
Live on air, the Radio Nova breakfast presenter will cycle his own Penny Farthing from the Summit Inn, Howth, to Hill 16 in Croke Park to raise awareness for the campaign and inspire the public to see what they can do to help raise funds for Jack & Jill throughout October.
Pictured at the launch is Carmel Doyle, CEO of Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation with PJ Gallagher and Harvey White, (2) from Ballyfermot and his mother Edel. The White family are among the 99 families across Dublin currently under the care of Jack & Jill. Listeners to Radio Nova will be able to register their own Up the Hill challenge or donate via www.jackandjill.ie and there is also a text donation line available; donors can text WECARE to 50300 for €4 and Jack & Jill will receive a minimum of €3.60 (provider:LikeCharity helpline 0766 805278).
