Busy month at Griffin’s of Dripsey

cycle2Cycle for Charity 2015 raised over €2000 for Cork Simon and One Man’s Ethiopia. On Sunday March 1st a lot of cycle clubs and cycle enthusiasts braved the harsh weather to raise much needed funds for Corks Simon and One Mans Ethiopia. The thunderstorms, bitter winds, and pelting rain did effect the attendance of the cycle. Prior to Sunday the team at Griffin’s had hoped to raise more, but were very grateful to the hardy cyclists that did turn up to brave the elements, and cycle for charity. 100% of the money raised for The Cycle for Charity is given to the charities. Griffin’s Garden centre cover all the cost required to run this successful event. This is Griffin’s’ third year to host this cycle, and work hard to raise both money and awareness for the two charities. Every year, Granny Griffin treats each of the cyclist to her heart warming soup and homemade brown bread. Margaret Griffin would like to take this opportunity to thank all the cyclists, Red Cross team, An Garda Siochána, and the stewards, who worked hard to ensure a successful but safe cycle Demos, talks and workshops at Griffin’s.
