The Winter Wonderland themed Leinster Suite at Birmingham Irish Centre was the venue for the 2015 Birmingham Irish Cycle Appeal gala dinner dance and presentation evening.

Just under 300 people attended the event -one of the largest BICA events in recent years.

During the evening cheques totaling £70,000 was presented to well deserved charities. All the money was raised during this year’s BICA week-long cycle ride from Malin Head in Donegal to Mizen Head in County Cork.

Now in its 16th year, the annual event would never take place without the hard work of Joe and Michelle Argue, plus their legion of supporters.
