Tipperary’s largest local annual charity fund-raising organisers, the North Tipperary Vintage and Machinery Club, are pictured here below together with some of their membership, presenting a cheque for €2,300, to Ms Mary Larkin, latter accepting the donation, representing Thurles Mental Health.
The club’s annual presentations are always donated prior to Christmas here in Corcoran’s Pub, Two-Mile-Borris, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
Mr John Dunne, the Club’s Chairman, praised the magnificent efforts from all members who had so generously & unselfishly supported their numerous fund-raising events over the last 12 months, not just financially, but also by members making available valued time in organizing all fund-raising projects undertaken.
Prior to the presentation Ms Larkin spoke glowingly and in detail regarding the magnificent work currently being undertaken by their organisation. Fr Joe Tynan also addressed the assembled gathering, pointing out the importance of continued verbal interaction between people, especially those suffering from depression and other mental health issues.
Following the presentation, guests shared in finger food and other refreshments specially organised by the North Tipperary Vintage and Machinery Club’s membership.
