To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.” – Mahatma Gandhi.

The Club’s Chairman Mr John Dunne spoke of the magnificent efforts of all involved, who had so generously & unselfishly supported their annual fund raising events, not just financially but also by donating their much valued time to all projects undertaken.

Mr Edward Hayes, representing Down Syndrome, in thanking the North Tipperary VMC for their generous donation, spoke of the tremendous work being currently carried out by their Association here in Co Tipperary.
