No Ticket To Electric Picnic? No Problem

Electric Picnic is officially SOLD OUT! So how can you get there? Cycle 80k or run 10k for charity and join 700 others next week to the best festival ever.

Good news for College Times readers, we are doing a Student Special! Raising €290 for Irelands Childrens Hospice will get you there and back, watch the video below for more.

Tour De Picnic is an 80km cycle or a 10km run from Dublin to the Electric Picnic music festival in Stradbally, Co. Laois brought to you by Give2Go. This year will celebrate the tour’s 5th birthday and is the first year it is collaborating with College Times to get as many students on the team as possible!

Last year Give2Go had two great projects presented by Thank You Crumlin, Love Mia and LauraLynn House, Irelands Childrens Hospice. Mia Keaveney is a life long patient of Crumlin Hospital who at the age of 12 has taken on a massive challenge to raise funds for a new out patients unit. LauraLynn House provides end of life care to sick children in a very unique, special setting in Dublin. Tour de Picnic has funded a complete revamp of the multi sensory garden that can be enjoyed by all the children and their families. These projects mean so much to all involved and your money will make a difference that will change the lives of so many families.
