At a recent meeting of the Macra na Feirme national council, held in the Irish Farm Centre, a cheque for €10,678 was presented to Sarah Surgenor, head of communications and fundraising at St Patrick’s Mental Health Services. The cheque included a split of the proceeds of the calendar initiative between St Patrick’s Mental Health Services/Walk in My Shoes and Macra na Feirme.

Speaking at the presentation, Macra na Feirme national president Seán Finan said: “I would like to acknowledge and thank all the Macra na Feirme members who participated in the calendar initiative. This money will help St Patrick’s Mental Health Services to provide mental health education to communities around the country as part of its advocacy campaign, Walk in My Shoes.”
