The group joined the volunteer lifeboat crew and regional staff to take part in an energetic and fun-filled ‘Spinathon’ at Integral gym Drogheda.

The spinners were off the blocks at 9am with time slots being allocated to a number of local charities across the day. Ten Clogherhead RNLI Lifeboat volunteers cycled flat out during their allocated slot at the Integral Fitness Centre in Droghehda to raise funds for the RNLI lifeboat.

Commenting on the event Clogherhead RNLI volunteer Lifeboat Press Officer Gerry Kelly said, ‘ It wasn’t the Tour de France but it might as well as have been with the determination our spinners put into it. We are so grateful to the public for their support and we would also like to wish the other worthy charities who took part every success with their fundraising.’

There is still time to pledge a donation to Clogherhead RNLILifeboat. Please contact Padraig Rath Tel: 0876784912 for more information.
