Volunteers are needed to help run the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle next month.

The July 2 event is one of the biggest one-day cycling events in Ireland.

Thousands of cyclist set out from Killarney to raise funds for various local and national charities.

One of those charities is Irish Community Air Ambulance.

The money raised during the Ring of Kerry will help the rapid response helicopter to respond to even more people who find themselves in life threatening trauma or emergency situations in Munster and across the country.

Officials from the Irish Community Air Ambulance are recruiting volunteers for the cycle.

They need people to operate the food station in Killarney, car park marshals and stewards along the route.

“We need to recruit a number of volunteers to help make this iconic event successful. We have already sourced our medical volunteers but are always open to more support for the day,” Lorraine Toner, Head of Community and Donor Engagement at the Irish Community Air Ambulance.

“Stewards along the route is an area that needs the most volunteers. We need general safety marshals and people to help ensure cyclists and spectators adhere to the rules of the road. We also need people welcome participants at the finish line and present them with medals. The reps will also help ensure safe dismount from bikes and that supporters adhere to stewards at finish line.”

If you can help, please get in touch Lorraine on lorraine@communityairambualnce.ie or call 086 7876484.
