Our very own Business Systems Development Manager; Cathy Young and the team of Yorkshire Roses are once again dusting off their bikes for Charity. The Yorkshire Roses will be pedaling for 122 Miles on Saturday the 2nd of July 2016 for the Ring ‘O’ Kerry charity cycle in aid of Safe@Last.
Safe@Last is a local charity the Yorkshire Roses are passionate about and would love to help them in the work they do for children and young people by raising as much as they can.
The Ring ‘O’ Kerry charity cycle is now in its 32nd year and is the biggest one day charity fundraising event in Munster which attracts thousands of leisure cyclists who always finish experiencing a fun and rewarding days cycle. The Yorkshire Roses will be cycling for 122 Miles around the spectacular Ring ‘O’Kerry while fundraising for their chosen local charity Safe@Last.
Safe@Last is a charity that provides wrap around services from prevention to crisis intervention for children and young people at risk through running away or from being thrown out of their home in South Yorkshire.
Research shows that nationally 100,000 children run away or are thrown our each year and we know that around 4000 of these incidences take place in South Yorkshire.
Running away is a symptom of many varied problems but it is an extremely dangerous choice to make. Children that run away from home often become involved with risky behaviours in order to survive on the streets including committing or becoming victims of crime, misusing alcohol and/or drugs and being subject to sexual exploitation and abuse.
Please help the Yorkshire Roses to make a difference.
