Supermacs Fun day Fundraiser in aid of Regina’s Fight For Life

Supermac’s Castlebar is once again teaming up with the West Motorsport Rally team to raise funds for a very worthy cause. A fund raising day will be held on Saturday, February 16 from 2pm to 6pm and will include kid’s activities, raffles and spot prizes. All funds raised on the day will go to the Regina Duffy’s Fight for life campaign.

Regina started her treatment last week and all at Supermacs would like to wish her the best of luck with it. The initial fundraising target has already been raised but the journey has only begun. Regina is expected to spend the next four months receiving treatment in the U.S. Despite raising the initial funding target, she will continue to require treatment. So get down to Supermac’s Castlebar on Saturday and bring the kids, maybe win a prize and have some fun raising much needed funds.
