Competition winner to donate children’s bicycles to charity
BRAY WOMAN PRESENTED WITH TWO ADULT BIKES BY SINNOTT SKODA
BRAY Woman Mary Coleman is the lucky winner of a total of four bicycles given away in a recent competition by the Wicklow People/Bray People and Sinnott Skoda.
Readers collected tokens in both papers to enter the competition for two adult mountain bikes and two children’s mountain bikes.
Mary’s son Ben is over six feet tall, so they will both be delighted to use the adult bikes, and she is generously going to give away the children’s bikes.
The Wolfe Tone woman works for Sophia housing and will donate one of the bicyles to them, while she is considering donating the second to a Wicklow town charity.
Ben and Mary were presented with their bikes last week by Donna Murphy from the Wicklow People and Bray People, and Stephen Healy, general manager at Sinnott Autos in Wicklow.
The family owned business has been in Wicklow since 1987 and was founded by the Sinnotts - Jimmy, Paul and John.
Sophia Housing works with people who find themselves out of their own home. They provide individuals and families with support and housing.
The accommodation they provide includes emergency accommodation, long and short term supported housing, outreach tenancy sustainment, family support and long term housing for people who have a disability.
