Prosper Meath Reception for Dunboyne Pedal Pushers

 

A large crowd gathered in the sunshine at Trim Castle on Sunday 16th of September to welcome back the ‘Dunboyne Pedal Pushers’ Cycling Group from their 4 Province Challenge.  The 30 participants cycled 365km over 2 days to raise funds to help Prosper Meath build a fully accessible day service in Trim.

The fundraising event was spearheaded by Adrian Tiernan whose daughter Dearbhla attends the Prosper Meath Trim Service.  Trim’s local High Nellie Group met the group for the last 3km and led them into the town where they were joined on the cycle by Liam Hargadon from the Trim Service.

The group received a warm welcome from the crowd.  Gavin Duffy, presidential candidate presented the cyclists with medals and LMFM supported the cause by hosting an auction at the homecoming event and providing music from their roadcaster.

We would like to thank all businesses who sponsored the event as well as the many families from other Prosper Meath services who supported the fundraising event for Trim Service.

We would especially like to thank each of the cyclists and their families for the time and effort that they put in over the past few months to prepare for the cycle.  We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the cyclists and it has been a pleasure to get to know the members of the group whose friendship we will value for years to come.
