Tesco Cyclathon raises over €800 for Irish Cancer Society
A CYCLATHON HELD at Tesco Bray recently helped to raise over €800 for the Irish Cancer Society's 2010 and 2011 Tesco's Charity of the Year (COTY) partnership.
Tesco staff cycled in half hour slots on stationary bikes in the store throughout the day. The Greystones store also participated in the event.
The Cyclathon took place across 23 Tesco stores nationwide and all proceeds were donated to the Irish Cancer Society as part of the COTY partnership.
' The Irish Cancer Society and Tesco Bray would like to thank all who participated in and supported the Cyclathon,' said a sokesman.
The Irish Cancer Society would also like to remind locals to come out and support Daffodil Day on March 25. Activities will be taking place in Tesco Bray and in Tesco stores across the country.
All funds raised on Daffodil Day go towards the provision of free nationwide patient care service for those affected by cancer. The national fundraising target for Daffodil Day 2011 is €3.8 million
