Ms Georgina Ganly of the Irish Cancer Society commented upon receipt of the cheque:
“We are so incredibly grateful to the Irish Simmental Cattle Society for their hard work and efforts in bringing this charity auction to life in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Receiving a cheque for €13,100 is truly amazing and we can’t thank your contributors enough for this.
The Irish Cancer Society funds life-changing cancer research projects and provides free support and care to cancer patients and their loved ones across Ireland.
We typically receive just 3% of our funding from the Government, so it’s thanks to the generosity of fundraisers such as this that means we are able to provide services and support to ensure nobody in Ireland has to face cancer alone.
Your incredible support and generosity will continue to bring real and lasting benefits to the lives of cancer patients, survivors, and their families. Through donations like this we can ensure vital services like our freephone support line, volunteer drives to bring people to and from chemotherapy appointments, night nursing for end-of life care, crucial research plus so much more will be provided to help support cancer patients and their loved ones.
Thank you from everyone at the Irish Cancer Society for your support.”
The Irish Simmental Cattle Society would again like to thank everyone especially our Members who donated Semen & Embryos for auction last december and to those Simmental breeders who supported the auction, hopefully your purchase will breed future champions.
Finally, we would again like to thank Ballyjamesduff Mart & Marteye for facilitating the auction.
