Meath Macra fundraising for Irish Cancer Society
22:30 Wednesday 5th of December 2018
While most people will spend Christmas Eve doing last minute shopping or spending time with family, the members of Meath Macra na Feirme will brave the elements when they take to the streets of Enfield to fundraise for charity. The Meath Macra Live Crib will return to Enfield this December 24, for it's fourth year to raise money and awareness for the Irish Cancer Society.
The live crib was a massive success last year with over €4,000 being raised for Meath Alzheimers Society and SOSAD thanks to the hard work and dedication of Meath Macra members and parishioners. To date, over €10,000 has been raised by the event for various charities.
The Live Crib will run from 11am to 5pm on Christmas Eve outside Enfield's Community Hall. Throughout the day, there will be refreshments, face-painting, Christmas carol singing, and music from Enfield Comhaltas at 2pm, as well as the main attraction, the live animals. On top of that, there will be nativity characters present. Macra members will be out on the streets of Enfield all day collecting money.
Over the past few years, the live crib has grown in popularity among all age groups. The animals, in particular the pygmy goat and donkeys, have made their way into the heart of the community. This Christmas Eve, Meath Macra are hoping to exceed last years grand total and invite all to come along to support Meath Macra na Feirme and The Irish Cancer Society. If you are unable to make it to the Live Crib on the day and would still like to donate, it is possible to do so by visiting the 'Meath Macra Live Crib' Just Giving page (
