Jacobs Charity Cycle on 25/26 May 2012!
Ciaran Power of Jacob's Bar Saggart, along with several dedicated volunteers, run an annual Charity Cycle in aid of the Children's Sunshine Home & LauraLynn House in Dublin.
Cyclists of all abilities are welcome, from the complete beginner to those with a few more miles in the saddle!
Our 1st cycle was held on 22/23 September 2011 and was a great sucess with over 85 cyclists making the journey from Jacobs Bar Saggart to the Sin Bin Pub in Limerick. You only have to look at the photos from last years cycle to see how much fun was had by all involved.
In total, just under€25,000 was raised from last years event for the Children's Sunshine home and with your help we hope to raise more this year!
If you are interested in taking part in our annual cycle or just helping out with the event please contact us through this page. For more information on this very worthy charity please see below.
The Children's Sunshine Home and Laura Lynn House
The Children’s Sunshine Home has been caring for chronically ill children since the 1920’s, providing respite, crisis, transitional and end-of-life care.
We are delighted that Ireland's first children's Hospice - LauraLynn House officially opened in September 2011 by President McAleese.
This allows us to extend our respite and end-of-life care to more children living with a life-limiting and life-threatning condition and their families. There are 42 hospices for children in the UK and none here until now.
Unfortunately, we can’t change a child’s diagnosis but we do make the most of short and precious lives. Our motto is putting life into a Childs day, not days into a Childs life.
To see the difference your donation will make please see http://www.sunshinehome.ie/video.html . Thank you.
Thanks to all who took part in last years.
