Latest Laois Event: Laois Vintage launches 26th Sponsored Vintage Road Run for Laois Hospice
Celebrating 26 years of Vintage Road Runs for Laois Hospice since 1996
Laois Vintage announced details of their upcoming Sponsored Vintage Road Run, in aid of Laois Hospice, at their launch on Friday last, 16thJune at Treacy’s Bar & Restaurant, The Heath. This year’s Road Run will take place on Saturday, 19th August, again from Treacy’s Bar & Restaurant, with a commencement time of 10.00 a.m.
This, the premiere of vintage road runs, was founded in 1996, and in our 25 years of fundraising Laois Vintage has raised and donated €1,027,808 to Laois Hospice. The outstanding success of having raised in excess of 1 Million, could not, or would not, have been achieved without the help of our exceptionally dedicated vintage enthusiasts, bucket collectors, and sponsors, who, year after year, give so generously of their time and money. So, a million thanks to all.
For this year’s car run we will be visiting the Donaghmore Famine Workhouse & Agricultural Museum, which aims to tell the story of the families who lived and died within its walls before, during and after the Great Famine.
We have organised, for our tractor run, the very popular drive to Mountmellick, with the official stop of at Turley’s Pub for light refreshments.
All vehicles will return to Treacys, between 3.30 p.m. and 4.00 p.m., where complimentary meals, hosted by the Treacy family, will be served, and Commemorative plaques distributed to each participant.
As always, we like to assure all our sponsors and supporters that all monies raised by Laois Vintage will be donated directly to Laois Hospice, and members of the public, who give so generously, can be confident that each and every donation received will go solely and exclusively to Laois Hospice care.
Remember the date, Saturday, 19th August at Treacy’s Bar and Restaurant. So do come along and join us, as a memorable day is always guaranteed. Anyone not having joined us in the past, or having not received an Entry Form, are always very welcome to join us, however a donation on the day towards Laois Hospice will be appreciated.
