A recent ‘pink’ spinathon has raised a staggering £1,000 for a Breast Cancer Charity.

Inspired by the forthcoming Giro d’Italia, the ‘stationary’ bike race was held at Watson Opticians in Ballycastle.

Valerie Watson explained: “To date we have raised £1000.13 in our spinathon for Breast Cancer Care which was inspired by the bikes and pink colour associated with both Breast Cancer charity and the Giro d’Italia.

“I would like to thank everyone who supported us including customers at all four branches of Watson Opticians, local businesses and passers by. I would also like to say a massive thanks to all those people who saw our event on facebook and twitter

“I would especially like to thank our staff without whom the event would not have been possible - Christine, Jenny and Laura.

“Times are hard for everyone just now but that is what made each and every donation so special. I am overwhelmed and humbled by the response.”
