The Belgian colours were flying high in West Belfast (in some corners they call it West Belgium..lol) The entry money was based on a minimum donation and add the sale of commemorative jerseys and a tombola. They reached a total of £5,138.17!!
Toby presented yesterday virtual the cheque to the charity and has this to say ” Where do I start How Lucky we were to get our Charity cycle over before this madness of Covid – 19. Had to stage this presentation this morning and thank everyone involved that made this day possible. Having an amazing Team around me made this run as smooth as it did. It Can’t get any better than this but we will always raise the bar another notch and hopefully, the £s will grow also for a very worthy cause..£5,138.17…Many thanks one and All”
