A Family Fun Day including a new and vintage auto show featuring cars and tractors is due to take place at the Clanree Hotel, Letterkenny on Sunday, June 26 starting at 1pm, with all proceeds going to help fund the Irish Wheelchair Association services based in Donegal.

After a tough two years of fundraising for all charities, IWA was delighted when approached by Michael Crampsie and Dessie Dolan in October of 2021 to discuss running the Vintage Day in 2022 with all proceeds being donated on the day to IWA Donegal.

IWA provides a vital service and continued to do so, to those with physical disabilities living in our local communities.

The service is inclusive of community centres, schools of motoring, assisted living services, parking discs, accessible transport, charity shops, and support in gaining advice and grant applications.

As they discovered during the pandemic their services are so important to getting people out into their communities and socialising and now in 2022, they are glad to be back in action in all areas.

Should you require further information on their services, you can contact Mary McGrenra at (087) 7448184 or alternatively on (074) 9177448.

So come along on the day see some fantastic vehicles, win spot prizes, and be entertained by Paul McCahill.
