As we embark into the year that is 2021, Seven Springs Cycling Club is delighted to announce  an exciting new partnership with the Loughrea based children’s cancer charity Hand in Hand. For the next two years, the Hand in Hand logo will feature prominently on the club’s kit and social media platforms and the charity will be the primary beneficiary of the club’s fundraising activities. It is a partnership which has come into existence thanks to our good friends, clubmates and long-time club sponsors Niamh Lawless and Ciaran Cannon and we thank them both once again for their generosity.  Hand in Hand offer a multitude of services for families affected by childhood cancer with everyday supports such as cleaning, cooking and laundry through to play therapy, counselling and emotional care. Established in 2006 and based in Loughrea, the charity reaches out to families across the country as they deal with the traumatic news of a childhood cancer diagnosis.
