Local nursing homes set for special ice-cream delivery from charity bikers

Nursing homes across the Shannonside region will get a special delivery this weekend of ice -creams from a charity group better known for delivering PPE.

The BCT-OSVX group has been helping to deliver thousands of pieces of vital medical equipment for staff since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.

But they are now turning their attention to helping people in nursing homes and health centres cool off in the heatwave with a delivery of special Lily O’Brien ice cream this Bank Holiday weekend.

Approximately 11,000 ice creams are going to be delivered across Roscommon, Longford and parts of Westmeath this weekend.

Enda De Bruin is a member of the core team at OSVX- he said it’s a big challenge but they are looking forward to it :
