Important Charity Partner Update for GC 2016

November 30, 2015 General Category 0

We would like to share an overview of the EGM on last Wednesday the 25th of November and the important decisions which were made. From the motion presented to those in attendance, it was decided by a majority vote from the Galway Cycle members that a new charity partner should be selected for Galway Cycle 2016. We respectfully wish the previous partner every success in their fundraising for the year ahead, and hope that we can work with them at some point in the future instead.

In light of this vote, it was then further decided by a majority vote by members in attendance that we proceed with the charity who came in second place at the night of our AGM held on the 20th Oct, and on recounting the ballot sheets, this was determined to be Down Syndrome Ireland.

Therefore Galway Cycle 2016 will be in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.

A constitutional review committee was also formed to address the updating of the constitution, and professional advice will be sought to assist us in ensuring our constitution reflects and protects the Galway Cycle and our values.

Thanks to everyone for their support and patience – Galway Cycle is a small volunteer run event and we are learning as we grow – one thing we do know is that GC16 will continue to be the Cycling, Charity and Craic we all know and love.
