GSK Sligo wel­comed their col­leagues from all over the coun­try when they hosted a Wheelie Good Cause with pro­ceeds go­ing to the North­west Hospice.

Par­tic­i­pants in the event signed up for ei­ther a 50k cy­cle or the more chal­leng­ing 100k route.

Over 200 cy­clists and vol­un­teers took part in the cy­cling event.

Both cy­cles started and fin­ished at GSK’s plant in Finisklin.

All funds raised at the event were do­nated to the North West Hospice and a cheque for €4,200 was pre­sented at the end of the event to Mary Forte, Fundrais­ing Co-or­di­na­tor of the North­west Hospice.

The Wheelie Good Cause has been GSK’s flag­ship fundrais­ing event since 2012.
