All roads lead to Jackies Lakeland Bar, Ballinamore on Saturday, May 5 at 9pm where South Leitrim Macra are hosting their biggest charity event to date. They are raising much needed funds for North West Hospice & Irish Cancer Research with a charity Shave, Wax or Dye event.


Cancer affects so many of us, every 3 minutes in Ireland someone gets a Cancer diagnosis and every hour someone dies from Cancer in Ireland. Some members of South Leitrim Macra’s family and friends have been affected by cancer. Dotted around South Leitrim are posters of the event which are hard to miss and you’ll find sponsorship cards around Ballinamore, Mohill, Drumshanbo and Carrick-on-Shannon.


Would you dare shave your beard, dye your hair or wax those legs? Well South Leitrim Macra have plenty signed up to take part and can always do with some more willing volunteers on the night. You can even pay to pull a strip of wax once the price is right!


There will also be an auction on the night with weekend passes to Cowboys & Heroes up for grabs as well as a pair of weekend passes to the sold out Sea Sessions. For more see South Leitrim Macra's Facebook page or contact Brendan Curran 0863023098 or Siobhan Gallagher 0873748892
