The Order of Malta Longford Unit has issued a hearty thank you to all those who turned out for the organisation’s recently held fundraising night.
The evening, held at Longford Greyhound Track, drew large crowds as monies were raised to help purchase equipment for the group’s ambulance.
“We would like to thank all of those who sponsored races, placed advertisements, gave donations, attended on the night and bought tickets,” said a spokesperson.
Special praise was reserved for The Malta Unit’s main sponsor The Mulleady Group, Drumlish who now look forward to an open night in order to recruit new members.
That will take place on February 11 when the body expect to run an introductory course.
“We are hoping to attract people of all persuasions to join our unit,” added the spokesperson.
“Being a member of the Order of Malta is a rewarding organisation to be involved with. We cover football matches, all sporting activities, concerts such as Oxegen, Electric Picnic and many more.”
As a PHECC registered training institute new members can be trained from foundation first aid up to EMT practitioners. New and existing EMTs are welcome to join. For more info contact Karen on (086) 1733386.
