Jonesborough Charity Cycle is an annual charity event in its fifth year, raising money for local children’s charities. The sponsored cycles have raised over £70,000 pounds to date, all of which has made its way directly to help local charities. This year the chosen charities were Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children, Newry and District Gateway club, the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, REHAB and Autism NI. The annual event took place on the 7th July, consisting of a 20K cycle around Ravensdale/Cooley, a two hour hike through Ravendale forest and a family walk. Following the teams’ hard work an enjoyable family afternoon was hosted at a local village pub. In a bid to raise even more funds a charity auction was held with a number of exciting items up for grabs such as One Direction tickets, Manchester United tickets and signed sports kits. As major sponsor for the last two years, Terry Mulkerns of Mulkerns Eurospar explained his continued support, “We are delighted to continue to support Jonosborough Charity Cycle for the second year in a row. “The event continues to be so well supported each year by all the businesses in the community and as a result the funds raised each year are overwhelming. It’s a fantastic event and one which I am privileged to be part of.”
