Members taking part in the club’s annual charity ride on 4 September, backed by generous members, family, friends and local businesses, have raised almost 14,000 euro for Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA).

The transformational funds will help IMNDA provide care and support to people with Motor Neurone Disease, their families, friends and caregivers. Dinations can be made until the end of the month (see below link for details).

Almost 60 club members took to the roads across three distances – 50k, 100k and 150k, with the longer distances crossing Sally Gap and taking in breath-taking scenery along the way.

Sandymount Dodder Wheelers Chairman Thomas Davy said: “The charity spin, in its third year, is the highlight of the club calendar.

“It was superb to see so many members on the road raising so money for such a worthy cause. The fundraising response from members was truly moving and we are delighted to be able to play our small part in helping those who suffer from NMD.

“On behalf of the Sandymount Dodder Wheelers Committee, I would like to thank everyone who gave so generously.”
