Club Secretary Kevin Kenny welcomed representatives from the club’s three nominated charities to come forward and accept a cheque for one thousand pounds each.

All three representatives thanked the club for their generosity and spoke briefly of the work of each of their charity organisations.

Seamus McCabe accepted the cheque for P.I.P.S. Newry & Mourne, Paddy O’Hanlon received the cheque on behalf of Cancer Research and Barbara Sands accepted the cheque for the N I Leukemia Research Fund.

The club will also make donations to The Children’s Hospital in Crumlin, Dublin and the RNIB.

PIPS Newry & Mourne would like to thank Kevin and the Slieve Gullion Wheelers for choosing and supporting our organisation.
