Donagh Hennebry of Jigsaw Kerry who is preparing to take on the Giro D’Jigsaw this September. 

A MAN based at the Jigsaw Kerry centre is looking forward to a big cycle in aid of the National Centre for Youth Mental Health this September.

Donagh Hennebry works at their Tralee centre in Edward Street and he’s hoping other cyclists will sign up for the Giro D’Jigsaw — a 3 day, 470km cycle from Galway to Dublin and back to Galway taking place from Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October to raise vital funds to support young people with their mental health.

“It is limited to just 60 cyclists and over half the places are already gone,” said Donagh. “So far two people from Kerry have signed up — and one of those is me — with the huge number of cyclists in the county I’m sure there’s loads more who may be interested,” he said.

Each cyclist will experience life like a cycle pro, starting their journey from the rugged coastline of the Wild Atlantic Way in Galway to the gorgeous coast of the Irish Sea along Ireland’s Ancient East and back again.

The challenge aims to raise over €50,000 to support Jigsaw’s work improving the lives of young people experiencing mental health difficulties.

There is a €50 registration fee, and participants asked to raise a minimum of €750 to take part. Jigsaw will be there with you every step of the way, giving ideas and support to help you reach your fundraising target.
