Donations and commission from this year’s Christmas Show and Sale at Markethill Livestock will go towards Northern Ireland’s Air Ambulance Service, in memory of Lesley Ann McCarragher.
The service, which will be based at the former Maze prison site, relies on donations despite its reception inception.
The Christmas Show and Sale shows off the hard work and dedication of farmers who show top quality stock, but it makes the mart proud to be part of the local farming community, which gives so generously year in year out.
Thank you to all the sponsors who have donated to the auction and to all the farmers who are preparing their stock for next Thursday.
