450 mile Cricklewood cycle challenge

450 mile Cricklewood cycle challenge
Two London Irish lads from Cricklewood, Conor McWeeney and Francie Smyth, are cycling 450 miles from Glasgow to their homes to raise money for cancer research

Conor and Francie are cycling in aid of the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Cancer has affected both boys’ families and they felt they wanted to contribute to finding cures.

They are being sponsored by Dudden Hill Lane building firm Curley Concepts Ltd and its owner Padraic Curley.

On the boys’ Facebook Event their statement reads:

We decided to do this cycle in aid of Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and Macmillan Cancer Support. Cancer has affected both our families and we felt that we had to give something back to the people who work tirelessly to find a cure for Cancer and to those who offer so much help and support to Cancer sufferers and their families.

So on 29th March 2016, we will be leaving Glasgow City Centre and cycling the 450 miles back to Cricklewood! We will arrive back home on 2nd April 2016.

It would mean so much if you could support us in our cycle by donating anything you can – knowing that the money raised will be helping so many people will spur us on to the finish line when our legs want to give up! Every penny we raise will help to bring us a step closer to defeating cancer.
