SlurryKat Raises £10k to Support Children Impacted by Cancer
The amazing local agricultural machinery specialist has raised £10,000 for Cancer Fund for Children during a Spreading Technology Show.
SlurryKat, raised the incredible sum to support local children impacted by cancer, earlier this year, at the Waringstown firm’s headquarters where their latest spreading equipment was on show. A piece of SlurryKat equipment was very generously donated by the company to be 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.
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.
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.”
Sarah Clements, our Corporate Fundraiser added,
“We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of Garth Cairns and the entire team at SlurryKat. We were delighted to attend the Spreading Technology Show on the day and meet some of the staff, clients and business associates who were all very supportive and generous to the cause.
We would like to say a special thanks to Garth Cairns for his support, it has been a pleasure working with SlurryKat and we look forward to continuing to work with Garth and his team to support local families impacted by cancer.”
