The good folk of the Moynalty Steam Threshing were certainly busy in the prelude to their 47th Annual Festival.

They also got together on Saturday before the big annual event and did a major fundraiser for the much needed services provided

by the Meath Branch of the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland.

With over 90 tractors signing up for the tractor drive they gathered over €3,450.00 in funds on the day.

In the above picture members Christy Blake, Noeleen Duffy and Marian Keating accepted the cheque on behalf of the Meath branch.  This is not the first time the Moynalty team have supported the charity and is much appreciated.

The Meath branch of the Alzheimers Society of Ireland is based at Whistlemount, Kells road Navan. They provide daycare services for the whole of the county.

Prior to covid, over 100 people attended the centre from Monday to Saturday.

Currently, due to covid, the numbers have been reduced to twelve people a day, five days a week. It is expected that the numbers will rise to 18 persons per day in the coming months.

The Meath branch wished to thank everyone who supported the tractor run and the hard-working

committee of Moynalty Steam Threshing for their support and indeed thanks everyone who helps to keep the services going.

There will be a Memory 5k walk in aid of the Meath branch of the ASI on Sunday 18th September ’22 in Blackwater Park between 11.00 am and 1.00 pm

All are welcome.
