MEMBERS of the Desmond Bikers Club from Newcastlewest participated in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Charleville to publicise a run which they are making from Charleville on Sunday, April 11 in aid of three year old Seamus Kelly from Tournafulla, Co. Limerick who is suffering from leukaemia and is presently being treated at the MidWestern Hospital in Limerick and in Our Lady's Children's Hospital at Crumlin in Dublin.
The biker's route from Charleville will take them to Kildimo, Foynes, Athea and Tournafulla and local lady Mary Dineen who is resident in Miltown, Charleville is looking after the arrangements from the Charleville end. "Little Seamus has received treatment at the MidWestern Hospital in Limerick and in Crumlin and we are raising money which will go towards the cost of his treatment.
Each motorcycle will contribute a minimum of €20 per bike and the run will start at the Campus Service Station on the Cork Road.
"We express sincere thanks to Future Images of Charleville who have printed posters and sponsorship cards free of charge for us," she said. Anybody wishing to donate to this cause or who would like a sponsorship card should contact Mary Dineen at 0879229862.
