THE LONDON Irish Vintage Club held a cheque presentation evening at the Tir Chonaill Gaels clubhouse in Greenford last weekend where over £100,000 was handed over to a number of charities.
The fantastic sum was raised at the London Irish Vintage Rally and Family Day which took place at Tir Chonaill Gaels last August, an occasion which has become a highlight of the Irish calendar in London since it’s inception in 2011.
Cheques were presented on the night to Console (£26,650), North London Hospice (26,201), London’s Air Ambulance (£16,990), Hillingdon Autistic Care and Support (£31,310), Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund (£1,250), Great Ormond Street Hospital (£1,000) and the Hospice of St Francis (£1,250). The evening also featured live music, a buffet, and plenty of craic.
In total over £270,000 has been raised since the inaugural London Irish Vintage Rally and Family Day in 2011. The 2015 Vintage Day will take place on Sunday 6th September at Tir Chonaill Gaels in Greenford, an occasion not to be missed.
