Colin resides in Marple and has represented Ireland in both London 2012 and Rio 2016, winning a silver medal in the time trial in 2016.
Now he’s working towards Tokyo 2020 but needs your help to raise funds for training, racing and equipment. The full story about why he needs your help and what the funds are for can be found here: Colin Lynch, Paralympian.
Along with the staff of Julian Wadden Estate Agents in Marple, he is organising this ride to help raise funds that will go directly towards his qualification campaign. We hope you’ll join him on the ride and follow his journey all the way to Tokyo.
If you don’t want to join the ride, you can donate directly to his fundraising campaign here: GoFundMe.
A group of teenagers wake up in a forest with no clue how they got there. They find themselves separated into two different teams but have no idea what game they are expected to play. With no food, no water and seemingly no chance of escape, it’s only a matter of time before things start to get drastic. But whose side are people on and how far will they go to survive?
A play about human nature, the tribes we create and cannibalism.
