12th Year of the Rathfriland Motorcycle Club Run in aid of the USPCA
Rathfriland Motorcycle Club held their annual fundraising run on Tuesday 31st July. The Motorcycle Club commenced in Rathfriland Town Square at 7pm collecting donations of pet food for the animals in the care of the USPCA and then proceeded to the USPCA Animal Hospital in Newry where they were greeted by USPCA staff and animal residents.
The USPCA welcomed a fantastic arrival of over £300 worth of donated pet food from the club. The Motorcycle Club of Rathfriland have been carrying out this Food Collection for the USPCA for over 12 years and it has went from strength to strength each year.
Howard Anderson who founded the charity run 12 years ago said “We enjoy and look forward to this event every year and each year it gets more successful with the support of Jolley’s stores and the Rathfriland Public. With their help we can make a difference to animals in the care of the USPCA, it’s marvellous to be able to put something back into the community”
Colleen Tinnelly USPCA Development Manager stated “We would like to thank everyone involved who kindly donated food and a special thanks to Jollyes pet stores in Newry, Lurgan, and Banbridge for their contribution of food as well”
A special thank you to RMC for their commitment over the last 12 years. The USPCA solely depends on kind donations from the Northern Ireland people, which we are entirely grateful for in order to continue our charitable work.
