We’re delighted to announce that the site picked up a Gold award in the ‘Online Social Impact’ category at the Digital Media Awards 2010. The Digital Media Awards seek to recognise and reward excellence in the digital media sector and take place annually. While we didn’t win the category, we’re delighted that the work we’ve put into the site has been recognised. Congratulations to all the winners.
Cyclists of all abilities are being encouraged to polish their spokes and take part in the Women’s Aid East Coast Cycle Challenge in May. The 70K fun cycle from Dublin to Arklow takes place on Saturday 15th May 2010 and takes in some of the most beautiful scenery the East Coast of Ireland has to offer. All funds raised go to the Women’s Aid National Freephone Helpline (1800 341 900) which supports women and their children experiencing domestic violence.
You can cycle as an individual or as part of a team and will be encouraged along the way by an excellent support team of motor-bikers, car support, puncture repair and first aid experts and the Gardaí. It is not a competitive cycle and the emphasis is on fun and completing the challenge. The route will be well marked and signposted and regrouping points will make sure cyclists are not out on the route alone, if they don’t want to be. Refreshments, including bananas, water and lollipops, are available along the route and there’s a stop off for lunch halfway at the Newcastle Inn.
