November 17th 2015

M2M Cheque 2015 On Friday 28th August, a group of 7 cyclists set out on a 640 km journey over 3 days from Mizen Head to Malin Head in Donegal, Ireland's most northerly point. Having completed this challenge last year in five days, their mission this time was to finish in three and again to raise money in the process for Jigsaw Donegal. The cyclists, who included Cathal Wilson (North Pole) along with Four Masters riders Robert Kavanagh, Paul Harris, Adrian Wilson, Wesley Moore and Ciaran Devine and Mark McGranaghan , aimed to raise as much money as possible for Jigsaw Donegal.

Robert Kavanagh, spokesman for the group said "The boys have worked extremely hard and organised several fundraising activities, a sponsored cycle by the staff of Fleming Agri Products, a fun cycle in Inishowen in July under the banner of Four Masters Cycling Club and North Pole Cycling Club. We had a very successful charity car wash for the second year running at Sweeney's service station Ballyraine in conjunction with Top Oil. Lurgybrack National school donated the proceeds of their annual cake sale while St Eunan's College donated the proceeds of three fundraising events to the cause. Newton GAA Club ran a pub quiz night and kindly donated their pot for the night. Eamonn McGlynn Depot Manager at Irish Pride Bakeries presented Jigsaw with a generous donation on behalf of the Company and finally we had three bags packs and two door collections at Dunnes Stores and Tesco".
