Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s Lagan Valley LeisurePlex recently played host to a sponsored Spinathon raising money for local Northern Ireland charity, Cancer Fund for Children. Organised by the facility’s Vitality Gym employees, Ryan Hegarty and Hayley Priestley, the sponsored Spinathon ran for a total of eight hours on Saturday 17th November, with both Hayley or Ryan on a bike and cycling at all times throughout the entirety of the sponsored cycle. To date, the Spinathon has raised £1,338 with donations still coming in, with both Ryan and Hayley being overwhelmed by the support they have received. Prior to the Spinathon taking place, Councillor Uel Mackin, Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council made an appearance on the day to show his support of Ryan and Hayley’s efforts in raising funds for the charity as Cancer Fund for Children is his Mayoral Charity for his year in office.
