Trac­tors raise trailer load of cash for MRI

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

A COUN­TY­WIDE trac­tor run, held in En­nis­cor­thy, raised a to­tal of €8,110 for the MRI Now cam­paign which, in re­cent weeks, has seen a huge in­flux of money that has set it well on its way to reach­ing its €250,000 goal.

The event had over 300 trac­tors tak­ing part, leav­ing from En­nis­cor­thy Mart and tak­ing in Ferns and Bal­ly­car­ney on a 20km loop.

The run was held on the same day as the Hope and Dream 10, which the MRI Now cam­paign is also ben­e­fit­ting from and many of its par­tic­i­pants stopped by to sup­port the run.

Or­gan­iser Pat Mon­aghan said it had been a spe­cial event as all of the clubs around Wex­ford had come to­gether for this one cause.

He added that they had not ex­pected the re­ac­tion that they got.

‘We didn’t think we would hit the €8,000 mark so we were de­lighted with that.’

The cheque was pre­sented to mem­bers of the MRI Now cam­paign at Whit­ford House Ho­tel.

Colm Neville, on be­half of the Friends of Wex­ford Hos­pi­tal’s MRI Now cam­paign, ac­cepts the cheque for €8,110, the pro­ceeds of a vintage trac­tor run.
