Following Anthony Tate’s recent 40th birthday party the last bit of business was the formal cheque presentation to the two very worthy charities. The total amount raised from the event was €2,432-00 and the lads firstly presented a cheque for €1,216-00 to the Cootehill Community Cancer Support Group.

In addition, the same amount of €1,216-00 was donated towards the Irish Heart Foundation and the photograph shows (left to right) Martin Carroll, Anthony Tate and Dwayne Rooney.
This impressive sum was raised at Anthony’s birthday party when he decided to hold a sponsor beard shave with all proceeds being donated towards charity. Along with Anthony, the other brave men included Dwayne Rooney, Martin Carroll, Aidan Sheridan and Pauric Sherry. It was an amazing night and a fun challenge that raised many smiles and provided plenty of entertainment. The night was a huge success and was really an honourable and wonderful gesture by the lads and once again well done to Anthony and his family and friends for organising the event and thank you to all the lads and everyone who went.
