Tomás Kelly is a 16 year old young man from Cahir, Co. Tipperary who had been heavily involved in sport before suffering a life changing spinal injury. The local community have rallied together to raise funds for him and his family by co-ordinating two very exciting events, a Race Night and a Charity Vehicle Run, taking place on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of April respectively. All funds raised at each event will go to the Tomás Kelly Trust.
The Race Night will take place at Barne Lodge, Cahir Road, Clonmel from 9pm on Saturday 14th and all are welcome to the dedicated marquee for this very special fundraiser. The Race Night will be followed by a live auction with yard visits to Gordon Elliott and Aidan O’Brien as top lots expected to draw a crowd. To sponsor a race, buy a horse or donate an item for the auction please contact Elaine on 087-9496570.
On Sunday, a spectacular Charity Vehicle Run showcasing every vehicle imaginable from vintage to modern farm machinery will leave Barne Lodge at 11.30am and the convoy will draw to a halt at Noel O’Donnell’s Texaco Garage in Cahir with viewing and photo opportunities at The Square, Cahir at 12.30pm. All welcome to take part and spectate, sponsorship cards for participants available at Barne Lodge.
