County Down company Joseph Walls Ltd is the main supporter of the prize heifer charity raffle being run by the NI Commercial Cattle Club in support of Belfast Hospital School.
This heifer was carefully sourced/selected by the NI Commercial Cattle Club based on having all the attributes of making a superior suckler dam.
As a non-profit organisation, the club depend on the support of sponsors to run their annual events, notably the upcoming Summer Spectacular.
This initiative was no different, and whilst the club covered the purchase of the prize heifer, the committee and members were overwhelmed with gratitude when Joseph Walls Ltd offered to supply all concentrate feed so that the heifer is in prime condition for the raffle.
The committee expressed its thanks to Joseph and Christopher Walls of Joseph Walls Ltd for their support in this initiative
The club has been overwhelmed by the generosity of the public throughout the summer between buying tickets and giving donations to the fund.
