Charity Cycle Lands End to John o Groats
Wednesday, 5 July 2017 | Admin
Chloe’s Chemoo Cows was set up by local parents Mark and Elaine McNeil, in September 2011, in memory of their daughter Chloe Alexandra McNeil. At 11 years of age she lost her fight with an inoperable and incurable brain tumour just 9 months after her initial diagnosis.
The inspiration behind Chloe’s Chemoo Cows was Chloe’s love of art, her teddy ‘Chewits’, who was never far from her side in hospital, and her love of all things cow related! Their mission is to raise awareness and much needed funds to brighten the lives of children with cancer, to do this they work alongside Clic Sargent, the Macmillan outreach nurses and the play therapists at the Schiehallion Ward, Yorkhill Children’s Hospital.
One of the first things Chloe’s Chemoo Cows does is provide all children receiving chemotherapy with their own Chemoo Cow gift box containing a soft toy cow, bookmark, sticker and certificate.

Over the course of the last few months Irvine Cycles has got to know Mark & his cycling friends pretty well. Our job has been to make sure their bikes have been serviced throughout the gruesome training schedule they have undertaken in preparation for the charity cycle.
It has been our pleasure to help the guys (pictured above) for a most deserving charity. At the time of writing this blog the guys will be going through the pain barrier and most likely getting through plenty "chamois" cream.
On behalf of all at Irvine Cycles we wish the guys all the very best on their charity cycle.
Here is some pictures from their journey so far :
