Titanic Summer Solstice Sportive cycling event receive a helping hand from Power NI

Titanic Quarter Cycling Club have received a £300 community grant from Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading energy supplier.

The Belfast based club was nominated to receive the funding by Power NI employee, Michelle Kelly as part of the company’s staff sponsorship scheme ‘Helping Hands’, which gives staff the opportunity to put forward local groups and organisations for support.

Thanks to the donation, the association was able to cover the cost of running the ‘Summer Solstice Sportive’ event.

The Titanic Quarter Cycling Club was founded in 2013 by Alex McGreevy and Philip Corr, to promote Titanic Quarter as a place where cyclists can share space and enjoy the social, leisure and competitive nature of cycling.

Power NI is delighted to have been able to support the TQCC, helping to cover the costs of this year’s Summer Solstice Sportive event, in memory of founding member of the club, Philip Corr which took place on Friday 17th of June.

The annual 38-mile cycle is open to both members and non-members and helps raise funds for local charity: ‘Disability Sport NI’.

Grateful for the funding, Power NI employee and Titanic Quarter Cycling Club member Michelle Kelly explained,
“It means a lot to me that Power NI want to help their employees give back to the community.  Disability Sport NI (DSNI) are Titanic Quarter Cycling Clubs charity partner and we’ve had the pleasure of joining DSNI during some of their training days. 

DSNI have customised assistance bikes stored at the Ozone on Ormeau embankment to enable their members to enjoy the sensation of going fast on a bike. If anyone would like to volunteer, please reach out to DSNI.”
