Donations raised from Collone’s 75th anniversary charity cycle will go to Cruse Bereavement Care NI and Danny Mills Heart Foundation.

The club would like to thank all those who donated.

On the day George McCall, who is a past member and father of the club president, Joanne Shilliday, completed 40 miles of our cycle.

George was a true inspiration to all club members out cycling that day.

Well done to Lorna Hawthorne who joined in for a while too.

En route members called in to their bug house that they built three years ago in Milford. Members met Andrew Gracey from Grassroots and he gave them a very informative talk on the wildlife and nature around the area.

Collone committee would like to congratulate all 24 members who completed the 75 mile cycle.
