A Northern Ireland agricultural machinery specialist has raised £10,000 for a local children’s cancer charity. SlurryKat, raised the incredible sum for Cancer Fund For Children NI, earlier this year, during a Spreading Technology Show at the Waringstown firm’s headquarters where its latest spreading equipment was on show.
A piece of SlurryKat equipment was raffled off as first prize in a draw won by Banbridge man, George Mitchell. Second prize was a pair of Ulster Rugby Tickets kindly donated by Ulster Bank.
SlurryKat’s CEO, Garth Cairns commented: “The event was a tremendous success for us.“ “We were pleasantly surprised by the sheer volume of visitors on the day and to raise this amount of money for such a worthy cause is fantastic and has encouraged us to do this again in the future”.
The event was attended by over 800 farmers and contractors, some from as far away as Sweden and Norway. The NI Minster for Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Mr Edwin Poots attended along with representatives from DEARA & Cafre. Other exhibitors at the event included NFU, HSENI, John Deere, JCB, Model Farmer and more.
