The team will take to their bikes to complete this annual charity cycle for The Donegal Hospice in memory of their friend and work colleague who sadly passed from cancer not long ago.
To date the charity cycle organised by the local An Post Letterkenny lads have raised over an amazing €55,000 for The Donegal Hospice.
Martin McGinley, one of the organisers says: “We are excited to be organising and associated with this very worthy event again this year. Training is progressing well, new members are joining our team and we are good to go next month. We invite all our friends, family and colleagues from other clubs who would like to join us on the road from Dungloe to Letterkenny, and it promises to be another really enjoyable spin out and all for a great cause”.
Loading and registration will take place at O’Donnell Park, Letterkenny from 8am and dispatch to Dungloe will be at 9am sharp. Cycle leaving Dungloe at 10:30am, returning to O’Donnell Park, Letterkenny, where refreshments will be served.
Paul Crampsie, charity event organiser says: “The cycle again this year will be a controlled cycle and we are delighted with the support that we get from our safety marshals and event helpers every year. “e appreciate all the support from everyone and especially all who take part and our sponsors, we are asking for a donation of only €20 and the cycle is open to everyone, all levels of cyclists are welcome, so feel free join us.”
