“On behalf of the Group would like to thank and congratulate everyone involved.

“I would also like to thank the sponsors; the people who gave him donations and the fantastic support through out this year, without them all this much needed money for these charities just would not happen.

“A lot of other people that help with our events, road users, residents, also Armagh I and local photographers Martin McCann and Vincent Loughran.

“We simply could not do this without your co-operation, so thanks to each and everyone. The grand total raised this year was £50,402.12.”
