Leinster Trio Back Welcome Home Cycle…
September 1, 2011 12:00 am Richard Blake
Leinster players Isa Nacewa, Fionn Carr and Andrew Conway have joined cyclists to announce details of the 22nd annual Welcome Home Wexford Cycle which takes place on Saturday 24th September when up to 400 cyclists will cycle from Dublin to Wexford…
The organisers are keen to point out that it is not a race and that it is open to all levels of experience, all ages, men and women. Last year’s age span was from 16 years to 78 years.
Welcome Home is one of Leinster Rugby’s official charities, and all money raised is used to support the work of The Peter McVerry Trust with young homeless people in Dublin.
The first ever Wexford Cycle took place in 1990 and is now the charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year. Peter McVerry often says that the accommodation and services provided by The Trust might not be in existence today without the funds generated by the Wexford Cycle through the years.
For those interested in cycling or donating, details about the Wexford Cycle and about Welcome Home charity can be found on www.welcomehome.ie
