On St Patrick’s Night, Friday, March 17, Granard Community Centre will host a Charity Whist Drive to help raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy Ireland (MDI).
This is the second time in as many years in which Granard Community Centre will host a Whist Drive to help raise funds for MDI.
The event is being held at the request of Anne Byrne from Ardagh, Co Longford who will be 102 years young on her next birthday in July.
Anne is an avid whist player and still plays regularly at various tournaments around the county including Granard Community Centre.
She has requested that all funds raised at this event to go towards support services for adults with muscular dystrophy as her nephew Hubert McCormack (originally from Legan, Co Longford) has muscular dystrophy and has worked for the organisation for over 27 years.
The event will start at 8.30pm and promises to be a great night for all avid whist drive players. A raffle will be held and refreshments served at the interval.
Hubert said, “We would appreciate your support in helping us to raise funds for MDI. All are welcome to attend and we look forward to seeing you then.”
