26th & 27th MAY
@ BANK OF IRELAND
HELP CYCLE THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY AND RAISE FUNDS FOR LOCAL SVP
ENTER IN TEAMS OR JUST COME ALONG AND HAVE A SPIN
CALL INTO THE BANK OR IRELAND FOR DETAILS
The Big Blue Box is coming back to us again this year. This year we are not the end event but rather a stop over which means we can have two days of fun. The cyclists are due to arrive from Westport with us on Thursday the 26th May at 2pm and leave us on Friday the 27th May at 2pm heading for Oughterard which is the final destination this year for the North and South routes.
In order to raise funds for our local Saint Vincent de Paul we are holding a Spin-a-Thon. We hope to have 3/4 spinning bikes stationed in front of the branch here and would ask people to help us cycle the distance of the Wild Atlantic Way travelled by the Big Blue Box. We hope to start at 12 noon until 3pm on the two days. We are asking for a donation of €5 minimum and then to cycle for between 5 -10 mins. We would love it if some local businesses would enter a team to take turns in relay or even in competition against each other to see who can cover the greatest distance in their time slot. There will be a leader board to show who is the best!
On the Friday we are also going to host a Cake Sale and coffee morning from 12 noon until 3pm. We have a hamper here in the branch which we are selling raffle lines for.
