A meeting will be held this week to hear submissions from any charity interested in becoming a beneficiary of the 2016 annual Paudie Fitzmaurice Memorial Tractor and Vintage Run.

The meeting will be held at Cordal Community Centre on this Thursday night, June 16th at 8:30pm.

Mission Raised €5,000

Last year the Castleisland to Kenya Mission Project raised over €5,000 though its association with the Tractor Run and linked events.

Members of any charity organisation who feel that they would like to become beneficiaries of this year’s event are very welcome to attend the meeting to speak to the ad-hoc committee.

2016 Date to be Decided

They will be invited to outline their work and how they would plan to work with the ad-hoc committee to benefit their cause.

The date for year’s Paudie Fitzmaurice Memorial Tractor and Vintage Run will be decided over the next few weeks and the announcement will coincide with the unveiling of the beneficiaries.
