HMV Charity Cycle raises over €20,000 for Irish Guide Dogs for the blind

H&MV’s inaugural charity cycle was a resounding success for the company with all money raised going directly to the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind. The total sum of money raised by the event which was held in July, departing from the Horse and Jockey in Thurles was an astounding €20,059. A huge number took part and the event exceeded all expectations. 

PJ Flanagan spoke of his huge appreciation for the input of the local community, particularly those in Moycarkey GAA Club who contributed generously and also took to their bikes and cycled on the day.  The company cycling Club, H&MV Crusaders and H&MV Engineering are extremely grateful for all those who helped to make the event such a huge success; particularly the event organising committee, the safety team, all employee volunteers, and the numerous cyclists who all returned home safely on the day. 

The main sponsors included Aggreko, Powerpoint Engineering, Clearwater International, Secure Power Systems and Ingenium.  H&MV would also like to acknowledge sponsorship received from Brian Reale Plant & Civil, ASC Limited, HSS Hire, Lyons of Limerick, Cork Builder Providers, SBI Connectors, Stakelum Office Supplies, MML Growth Capital Partners and BDO.  All money raised from the event goes directly to the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and provides much-needed funds for key services for those who are blind and partially sighted. 

H&MV Engineering is a trusted name in the electric power transmission industry. The company was established in 1997, and have quickly become a leading specialist in high voltage transmission and distribution systems.

H&MV are also in a leading position on the market which allows them to expand their services worldwide and are currently present in Europe and Asia, exploring further possibilities to expand and finding ways to leverage the experience we gain internationally.

Their main expertise is in the design and build of substations up to 400kV and have successfully completed projects across many sectors in transmission and distribution, renewables, data centres, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals to name a few.

H&MV would also like to thank everyone involved in the HMV charity cycle for helping raise such a staggering amount of money.
