Borrisoleigh Charity Cycle 2010
This years cycle in aid of the North Tipperary Hospice In Home Care Movement will take place on Saturday 25th September 2010. The In Home Care Movement was established 20 years ago to support home care service for cancer patients in North Tipperary. It needs approx EUR350,000 per year to maintain its services and the only source of income it has is through fundraising. Due to the generosity of the people of North Tipperary and the dedication of fundraisers the movement has expanded its service over the years to include, Palliative Home Care Teams including Nurses, Carers and Therapists, necessary equipment to support patients in their own home including profiling beds and mattresses and rise and recline chairs. Themovement has also acquired two Cancer Care Centres in the county – Suaimhneas in Nenagh and Suir Haven in Thurles. In each centre a Nurse Professional Manager offers a confidential service to cancer patients and their carers. These centres are fully managed and funded by the Hospice In Home Care Movement. The Movement also has respite centres located in St. Conlon’s Nursing Home Nenagh, Dean Maxwell Home Roscrea and the Hospital of the Assumption Thurles. All of these have two bedded units.
This is once again a very worthy cause and we are delighted to do the cycle on behalf of this group. Sponsorship cards are now available so its time to get the bike in working order again and start training. A few short spins two to three times a week between now and the 25th September should be enough to get you around the traditional 25 mile course.
Following a request from a number of cyclists we are hoping this year to include an additional route totalling 50 miles from Borrisoleigh to Thurles, through Kilkenny and Laois
and meeting up again with the regular 25 mile cyclists in Templemore. This will only take place if enough people are interested as we will have to provide on-road support for that group as well. If you are interested in doing 50 miles please contact PJ Delaney 0868175505 as soon as possible. For any other questions or to collect your sponsorship card contact P.J. Delaney or Ruairi O’Connell.
Remember to enter online before 10th September 2010!!
