Newry Canal Cycle 2019

Over 80 people put their pedal power to the test for Friends of the Cancer Centre’s third annual Newry Canal Cycle.

Deputy Lord Mayor for Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Councillor Mrs Margaret Tinsley, joined the cyclists to wish them luck as they set off on the 40-mile cycle from Portadown to Newry, stopping off at Poyntzpass for light refreshments.  

 

The canal, which dates back to 1742, stretches from Portadown to Newry and gave participants the opportunity to soak up its beautiful surroundings, local history, nature and wildlife while raising vital funds for the charity along the way.

 

We would like to also thank the cyclists and everyone who supported their fundraising.   All money raised from the event will be spent supporting local people affected by cancer across Northern Ireland.
