The Taxback Group sponsors Jack & Jill Kilkenny Cycle!
The Taxback Group is honoured to officially announce our sponsorship of this year’s Jack & Jill Kilkenny Cycle.
The Jack & Jill Kilkenny Cycle asks people to get on their bike on Saturday September 16th for this picturesque and energetic 100km or 66km trip across the county, with all proceeds going to the provision of home nursing respite care and support to sick children locally and nationally.
As long-term supporters of the charity, The Taxback Group today presented CEO of Jack & Jill, Hugo Jellett, with a cheque for €10,000 to sponsor this terrific family event, and to provide additional funds to the many families the charity helps each and every day.
