Ashford ICA presented the Irish Kidney Association (IKA) with a cheque for €3,200.

The Ashford Guild chose the IKA as their charity of the year after Marie Togher nominated them.

It is a charity close to Marie's heart. Last year her daughter-in-law, Liz, received a successful kidney transplant and is now doing great.

Marie and some fellow ladies from Ashford ICA took part in the Dublin City Mini-Marathon, while Marie also organised a bring and buy sale which raised over €700.

Ashford ICA members also came out in force for the Wicklow Lions Club table quiz, which raised €730 for the Guild's charity of choice. Other smaller get-togethers and contributions from people brought the total raised up to €3,200. Ashford ICA members presented IKA representatives with their donation at the Ashford Community and Heritage Centre last Tuesday night. Ashford ICA meet on the first Tuesday night of each month at 8 p.m..
