Gardaí on their bikes for blood cause

THEY provide the sweat and the gears but it is up to you to provide the blood.
Over five days, from May 12 to May 16, a group of around 20 gardaí, including Sergeant John Ryan and Chief Superintendent John Kerin from Ennis Garda Station, will undertake a gruelling 1,000km cycle that will see them visiting each one of the 26 counties.

The Garda Blood4Life 2014 Cycle is a novel charity event. It’s not a fundraiser. Instead, it aims to recruit blood donors and to raise awareness about the importance of blood donation in communities in every county.

People are asked to pledge a unit of blood on the IBTS website at www.giveblood.ie. Alternatively, call 021 4807400.
Better still, attend a local clinic and turn your pledge into a donation. Many of those who pledged a unit of blood last year have since returned to give second and third donations.
