Henry gives prize winners R5 spin
Desi Henry rewarded two competition winners with a ride in his Skoda Fabia R5 recently at a private forest near Ringsend, after the driver and his team Macsport helped to raise over £150,000 for Kevin Carey.
Carey, from Henry’s hometown of Portglenone, has a grade four brain tumour.
He and his family had identified expensive treatment which could help, and Henry and his team decided to help. Kenny Mcmenamin and Bernard Bradley were the names drawn out of a hat at the Ulster Rally to take a ride in the Czech-built car.
“When you can help and you can make some sort of difference that’s what you want to do,” said the new Irish Forest champion Henry. “We managed to collect around £2000; that’s money that will go a long way.
“Kevin’s treatment is going to be a long and slow process and it is expensive. We all hope that it works out for him but I suppose only time will tell if it has or not.”
