As you may already be aware, KAL Chairman, Danny Sullivan, suffered a cerebral haemorrhage in June this year. 

 

Danny is continuing his recovery at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), London, where he is surrounded by his loving family and a truly wonderful medical team.

 

Danny's son Tim and his partner Kacey will be taking part in Britain’s world famous long-distance cycle challenge - 'Lands End to John O'Groats': 969 miles of riding from the most south westerly point of the UK in Cornwall to the most north easterly tip in Scotland. They will ride an average of 108 miles a day and climb approximately 50,000ft in total over the 9 days. 

 

Both Timothy and Kacey have always seen this challenge as a great opportunity to raise money for their favourite charities however, in recent weeks, this goal has become all the more important to them. They will now be riding to raise money for the National Brain Appeal, the fundraising arm of the NHNN. Their choice is in honour of Danny, himself a keen cyclist and Ring of Kerry veteran (!). Their families have seen first-hand the fantastic work the NHNN do and this is their very small way of saying 'thank you', and giving something back. 

 

Please feel free to visit their website for more information - http://www.nationalbrainappeal.org

 

Timothy and Kacey would be so grateful if you could join them in supporting this wonderful charity and leaving any donation that you can via: their 'Just Giving' page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/timothy-o-sullivan2 

 

Any donation, no matter how large or small, will be tremendously appreciated by Tim, Kacey and the National Brain Appeal.

 

Finally, Tim would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their well wishes and messages of support in recent weeks. They are of great comfort to Danny’s wife Sheila, and the O’Sullivan family at this present time.

Kind regards,

Sinead
