Vintage Tractor Run

Each year for the past few years the Mostrim Vintage Club have held a tractor run to collect money which is divided up amongst charities and volunteer groups. This year the three organisations were St. Christophers – a charity for the handicapped, Longford Sub-aqua Club who have helped out with search and rescue  and ourselves. Money is collected via sponsorship cards, vehicle registrations and buckets – i.e. standing on the roadside with buckets and hoping passers by will donate. As the run this year coincided with the All-Ireland quarter finals there were lots of cars from Mayo, Cavan and Donegal that passed through town.  This years collection amounted to €10000, which, given the recessionary times, is amazingly generous and very much appreciated. I know the money will be used wisely!!!
