Club chairman Richard Rodgers said:”I would like to encourage everyone to support this year’s charity BBQ and raffle. There are some fantastic prizes on offer, and the BBQ is great opportunity for breeders and their friends to get together for a bit of craic, and raise much needed funds for a very worthy cause.”
