Canice’s Store to Store Cycle Challenge

Canice Nicholas, Managing Director of the Cara Pharmacy Group isn’t letting the Covid-19 pandemic get in the way of the pharmacy group’s fundraising efforts.

The Pharmacy Group recently celebrated 20 years in business, and in the run-up to the 10th Anniversary of the ‘Cara Bundoran Challenge’, the team had two milestone events planned.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was impossible to run the Cara Bundoran Challenge event earlier this year and having examined all possibilities to try and reschedule it for later in 2020, deferring it until 2021 was deemed the most viable option.

“But that does not mean that we cannot let either go without doing something and giving back to our communities,” they state on their Just Giving page. Canice has instead taken part in a ‘Cara store to store cycle challenge’ – cycling between all pharmacy stores from Cork to Killybegs. This is a total distance of 700kms.

During each leg of the cycle, Canice was supported by members of staff from each of the locations who cycled alongside him. All donations made will go directly to the beneficiaries of the rescheduled Cara Bundoran Challenge – The Marie Keating Foundation, The Asthma Society of Ireland and Bluestack Special Needs Foundation.
