Winters Property Management DAC, Liosban Business Park, Galway came up with a great idea for their Charity Fundraising Event 2017, called Buns ‘N’ Bikes.
This was held on Friday 29th September 2017 outside their office in Liosban Business Park under a gazebo where all employees of Winters took part in a static bike ride of 100kms. ‘From Galway to Croagh Patricks Peak’. All employees were given a sponsorship card to get sponsored to take part in this event.
The cycle was done on a rota, with all employees being given a time and distance to meet so that they completed the task as a full team as quick they could during the day. The overall cycle took just under 6 hours to complete and despite some bad weather the gazebo remained in place to allow the cyclists continue their bike ride, while at the same time there were some lovely home-made buns & cakes on sale which attracted people throughout the day to the stand and heighten the contributions and donations received from neighbouring businesses, workers and visitors.
The Charities of Choice
The chosen charities are Galway Hospice & COPE Galway. Two very worthy local charities chosen by Winters Property Management DAC to be the recipients of the funds raised.
With monies and sponsorship still being collected even into January 2018 including donations from businesses and contractors associated with Winters Property Management and sponsorship cards from employees the final figure was only realised around the end of January 2018 and on the 04th April 2018, the staff of Winters Property Management handed over two cheques dividing their total sum raised of €5750 equally between the two charities.
