Volunteers needed for Cycle Against Suicide

Each year, cyclists come together as part of Cycle Against Suicide to help break the cycle of suicide in Ireland. The annual event has seen over 10,000 cyclists take to the roads since 2013.

  This April, Cycle Against Suicide, will pass through Roscommon. Organisers are encouraging locals to register for the cycle, www.cycleagainstsuicide.com/register, or volunteer to help with the event, which will see up to 1,000 cyclists travel from Granard to Roscommon via Lanesborough on Friday, April 28th. Central to the success of Cycle Against Suicide is the Homestay Programme. Hosts provide cyclists with a warm meal, a chance to freshen up, and a bed for the night.

  If you would like to provide homestay accommodation when Cycle Against Suicide visits Roscommon, please email roscommonhomestays@gmail.com or homestays@cycleagainstsuicide.com. The local Homestay Coordinator for home stays is Sarah Brennan, who can be contacted on 087-2126078.
