Traditionally, Newry Chamber of Commerce and Trade would hold a series of events throughout the year that would support the work of charities in the Greater Newry Area.

A year which started with so much optimism, quickly turned to one of uncertainty, resulting in many of the Chamber’s fund-raising activities being halted. This year, Chamber President Emma Mullen-Marmion named PIPS, Newry, and Southern Area Hospice as her chosen charities.

Emma took up a challenge to complete 1 million steps over the last 3 months and climbed a series of mountains throughout the local region as part of her challenge.

Completing the challenge on Sunday past on the top of Camlough mountain Emma said “The challenge took me the length and breadth of the country, across water and high hills” she laughed.  “Lots of laughter, tears, talking and quiet moments too”, remembering her cousin Yul who passed away in January of this year, and her granda who passed a few months before.

Thanking the entire Chamber Community for all their support the Chamber President added.  “A huge thank you to everyone who joined me, who sent such lovely messages of encouragement over the last number of months, for those who supported me and for those who helped me to remember two amazing men who meant so much to me”

“PIPS Newry and Southern Area Hospice do incredible work for our local community and have supported my family greatly over the last year.  I wanted to do something to raise awareness of the great work that they do, and if I could raise money to support their work, even better”
