Mizen to Malin Hallions smash £10,000 target raising close to £20,000

In June, 10 cyclists of various abilities took on the mammoth task of cycling the length of Ireland cycling from Mizen Head County Kerry to Malin Head County Donegal.

With all donations accounted for the ‘Mizen to Malin Hallion’s’ smashed their original target of £10,000 bringing in an amazing £19,647.

Noel Johnston said: “We are overwhelmed by the support shown by family, friends and local businesses in the build up and during our event.

"We were confident of reaching our original target of £10,000 but are blown away by the final total."

"After visiting Amy’s House, CLIC Sargent’s Home from Home opposite the Belfast City Hospital, myself and Craig were in awe of the facilities and the difference they made to young people and their families living with a cancer diagnosis.

"We went back to the group and told them all about our experience which was more than enough motivation to make the cycle a success.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Engagement Manager Gareth McElduff said: “Having both Noel and Craig visit the Home from Home representing the group was a chance to show them how their hard work would benefit our fight for young live against cancer.

"The whole group really got behind the mammoth challenge and it shows in the unbelievable total we unveiled to them. We were so looking forward to letting them know, because the hard work they put in was second to none and we are so grateful for their support throughout the year and moving forward."
