Buncrana man who was left in wheelchair cycles 35km for charity

Finally, a Buncrana man will present a cheque of five thousand three hundred euro to the Irish Wheelchair Association today.

Paul Gill, who is a wheelchair user as a result of an accident, cycled just under 35 kilometres in one hour, using a spin bike.

All funds raised from Pauls bike challenge will be used to support the services of the Irish Wheelchair Association in Donegal.

Area Manager with the Irish Wheelchair Association, James Rafferty, congratulated Paul on his achievement:
