IRELAND’S biggest Santa Cycle is taking place on Sunday, December 1 to raise vital funds for sick children.

The public is invited to take part in the Santa Cycle, which is now in its fifth year.

More thn 500 people will be dressed as Santa as they leave Clondalkin Village at 5pm, before going through town, past the CHI at Crumlin (formerly Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital) and finishing in Clondalkin.

The Laurels cycle crew, who are arranging the cycle, won the charity event of the year at the Irish Healthcare Awards in 2016.

The cost is €30 which includes the Santa suit and Christmas lights. The money from the cycle goes to CMRF Crumlin who raise vital funds for Crumlin Hospital and the National Children’s Research Centre. The Laurels Cycle Crew has raised over €1 million for CMRF Crumlin.

“We’re so excited for the Santa Cycle this year,” Damien Long, co-founder of the Laurels cycle crew, said. “We’re expecting over 500 Santas to join us this year and to raise vital funds for an extremely important cause. It’s always such a lovely day and we’re calling on the public to join in.”
