Cycling 500 miles across Ireland to raise money for the Patrick Wild Centre

A big thank you to James Waterson and Alastair Dickie who cycled 500 miles across Ireland to raise money in aid of The Patrick Wild Centre.

James’s son Harry has Fragile X Syndrome – he was the motivation to take on this fundraising challenge. James and Alastair cycled 500 miles from Mizen to Malin Head on the Atlantic Coast of Ireland to raise awareness and funding for the Patrick Wild Centre for Research into Autism, Fragile X Syndrome and Intellectual Disabilities. They also raised money for Leuchie House, a local charity that is providing care and respite for people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their families.

After many months and miles of training, they started their challenge and loved every minute of it despite some of the Irish weather. There was a massive sense of achievement on completion of the 500 mile bike ride and they would both do it again in a heartbeat.
