Ardmac are delighted to invite you to our Cycle for Hope charity fundraiser, in aid of Pieta House.

The cycle will have three different routes to cater for different levels of cycling ability;
Beginner 15k, Intermediate 60k & Advanced 100k. We also offer a corporate team package for 4 persons. Join us on the day or opt to cycle from home on your own local route.
Ardmac will match ALL donations made. Cycle for Hope is a guaranteed great day out in aid of a fantastic charity and we hope to see you there.

That’s why this year, and for the last 4 years, Ardmac have chosen their charity partners with a focus on mental health; Pieta House provides a professional one-to-one therapeutic service to people who are in suicidal distress, those who engage in self-harm, and those bereaved by suicide. All services are provided free of charge and no referral is needed.
Ardmac is committed to increasing awareness of the mental health issues within the construction industry, providing the support and resources for our staff and raising vital funds for our charity partners.
In recent years we have put out a call to Ardmac employees to train as Mental Health First Aiders and the positive response to the call has been overwhelming. Many employees in Ireland, UK and Europe have taken part in various training courses provided by leading Mental Health organisations.
On these courses they learn the signs and symptoms of mental health problems and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective. Participants on the Mental Health First Aid training courses have been taught about the framework of communications, how to offer and provide initial help, and how to guide a person towards treatments and other supportive help.
