Bóthar is raffling off a Massey Ferguson 5710 tractor — which is worth €55,000 — at this year’s National Ploughing Championships.
The draw will take place on Thursday, September 19th at 5p m at the Bóthar stand; tickets are priced at €20, or you can purchase three tickets for €50 or seven tickets for €100.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide, Bóthar is sending a memorial ark, with a view to improving lives for families who are at different stages in the Bóthar life cycle.
“The most important part of this entire draw is that while someone here in Ireland will win a tractor, hundreds of families in Rwanda will win because Bóthar will be in a position to send life-saving Irish animals to lift families out of poverty." the international aid agency said in a statement.
Rwandan families will receive Irish dairy cows, Irish dairy goats, Irish chicks, Irish pigs, AI straws and water filtration systems.
