Eishtec Proud to Sponsor Cycling Without Age Initiative
Eishtec is delighted to be a corporate sponsor for the Cycling Without Age Chapter for Waterford. Cycling Without Age offers an amazing experience for elderly people as it gives them the opportunity to get a cycle ride around their favourite places and interact with their pilots on a trishaw. Passengers come back from their first cycle ride with delightful stories of their experience of getting wind in their hair.
Cycling Without Age is spreading across Ireland with Chapters already set up in Cork, Waterford, Wexford, Kilkenny, Limerick, Sligo, Leitrim, Wicklow, Dublin, Armagh and Belfast. The story of Cycling Without Age, in Ireland began when the first rickshaw arrived in Blackrock, Dublin in March 2017, just in time for the Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Since then, Cycling Without Age has been demonstrating the initiative to nursing homes and sponsors and spreading the word, with great effectiveness. Included below is a short film which shows the work done by Transition Year students in Newtown School Waterford during their school year to promote the Cycling Without Age concept and in fundraising for a Trishaw for use in the community.
As a result of the fundraising work and sponsorship, the Cycling Without Age Chapter in Waterford are extremely close to ordering their first Trishaw. Eishtec is looking forward to the continued growth of the Cycling Without Age initiative in Waterford and witnessing passengers taking advantage of this fabulous service.
