County Wexford tractor run is a runaway success
THE people of Caim and the surrounding areas are a very charitable group and that fact was highlighted in exemplary fashion through the success of a recent fundraising road run.
The Terry Barnes Memorial Run attracted a large group of participants but also an equally impressive crowd of onlookers who were delighted to show their support to those taking part. The event was organised to raise money for Wexford Cardiac Unit and also for the new sensory room in Caim National School. The local club is one of the foremost organisations of its type in the county and its members are very well known and highly regarded for the amount of charitable fundraising they do through their various road run events. In October the members held a run to raise money for Wexford Hospice Homecare and a significant aspect of what the club does is that the funding it raises each year invariably goes towards helping local organisations and local people. There was a great buzz of excitement about this year’s road run and the weather on the day was ideal making it all the more enjoyable for those taking part and those who supported the event. The club is always very appreciative of the support it receives from the general public and thanked those who helped make the day a success.
