Provide a bed for a cyclist!

Posted by Love Castlebar on April 18, 2013 at 15:01:38:

Please Help a Very Worthy Cause.........

On Sunday evening 28th of April (just over one week away) The cycle against suicide, supported by 2fm will stop over for the night in Castlebar. It is one of 14 stops on the nationwide tour.

Suicide is claiming the lives of at least 500 ...people in Ireland every year. The consequences are devastating.

Cycle Against Suicide is a voluntary organisation set up to raise awareness of the issue and offer assurance.
They are asking the people of Castlebar to open their homes to the cyclists and crew, providing a bed, a shower, a dinner that evening and a breakfast the following morning. The requirement is 110 beds.

There is a huge short fall in Castlebar. To date we have just over half the beds we need. I honestly think the only short fall is in awareness of the event. This is what this email is about!

To register a bed or if you need more info send an email to


Contact Helen through the "Love Castlebar" FB Page this initiative is out to provide Irelands Warmest Welcome to all visitors to our town. I think this is a great cause and a great opportunity for Castlebar to showcase the warmth of that welcome.

For those of you unable to offer a bed, please give it a like/share/post among your facebook crew or forward this mail to anyone you know with a spare bed and a big heart.

Thanks a Mill
