Midleton Macra Na Feirme presented a cheque for €3,500 to East Cork Rapid Response (ECRR) last Friday, 7 April.
Representatives of Midleton Macra Na Feirme made the presentation at the Maple Leaf Bar, Midleton.
Midleton Macra was represented by Trish Tobin, John Casey, Liam Cullinane, Liam Beausang, Niamh Kelly, Noel Brosnan and James Callahan, while the ECRR was represented by John O’Connell and Ger McClean.
The money was raised during the group’s Sleep Out in front of the Court House in Midleton from Friday, 16 to Saturday 17 December last year.
“We did a sleep-out in December last year along with members of Aghada, Killeagh, Knockraha and Dunmore Macra groups,” said Trish Tobin of Midleton Macra Na Feirme. “We raised €3,426 on the night, but we rounded it up from our own pockets to make it a nice and even €3,500 to give to the Rapid Response.”
