Speaking ahead of the event, the Donegal IFA chairman, Brendan McLaughlin, said: “Cancer is something that affects all farming families in Donegal and this is our chance to give our support and show our appreciation for the hard work done by Cancer Care West at its support centre in Letterkenny.

We are very grateful for the generosity already shown by farmers with donations of livestock and we call out again asking for anyone willing to donate livestock to get in touch with us.

“We also call on everyone to show up on the night of the auction to place their bids on the livestock in support of this very worthy cause.”

Further fundraising events will be organised by Donegal IFA in the coming weeks with further details provided nearer the time.

All money raised for this cause will go towards Cancer Care West projects in Co. Donegal.
