    Story

    I don’t often tap folk up on charity stuff and certainly the cause and the sacrifice should be worth it. I am cycling from Mizen Head to Malin Head (the southernmost and northern most points in Ireland) between 16th and 22nd of September. Its 6 days cycling and just over 400 miles (excluding wrong turns) and a mandatory few pints of Guinness each evening for medicinal and recuperative reasons.

    There are 5 of us from the UK along with a gang of lads (about 14 in total) from around Lurgan in Northern Ireland. One of those lads is called Sean McKeown who is widely known in the locality as “#Angelmandad”.

    His 11 year son jack was diagnosed in 2009 with a rare neuro-developmental disorder called Angelman Syndrome. The syndrome is characterised by severe intellectual and developmental disability, sleep disturbance, epileptic seizures, jerky movements, frequent laughter or smiling, and usually a happy demeanour. On the last day some of us will take turns pulling Jack’s buggy with our bikes. Sean has run a number of marathons, pushing Jack in a buggy and is a devoted father who wants the best for his son.

    So, we’re helping to raise funds for Sean in the first instance to build Jack a sensory room at home. This will cost approx. £10,000 and surplus funds collected will be split between the Local Hospice and Myeloma.org (cancer charity).

    Any donations greatly appreciated. Lots of people give to lots of charities in lots of different ways so no worries if your budget is spent elsewhere.

    Thanks to all for contributions. Best regards Paul
