Cathy White, Community Fundraising Executive at LauraLynn said;

We here in LauraLynn are so excited about our Cycle Challenge. The goal is to cycle 250k throughout the month of August while raising much needed funds for Ireland’s only Children’s Hospice. Due to coronavirus, so many of our summer events had to be cancelled, this is why this challenge is so great. You can take part anywhere in Ireland, all you need is a bike and a helmet and your good to go! So challenge yourself and get moving all while raising vital funds for the children and families we support!”

LauraLynn is the only Children’s Hospice in Ireland and provides hospice and palliative care to children with life-limiting conditions and their families from across Ireland. LauraLynn currently supports 220 families across Ireland.
