SUDEP Action

We raise awareness of SUDEP, epilepsy risks to prevent deaths & support those bereaved

Story

On Thursday 17th September we three directors from CaB Studios (Al, Ben and Kevin) are undertaking the annual Staples2Naples banger rally, the original and leading European banger rally and in turn raising as much money as we can for our chosen charity; Epilepsy Bereaved.

The monumental challenge we face is getting our £100 vehicle (a 1995 Volvo 440) from Calais to Rome in 4 days – dressed as The Stig from Top Gear. That’s about 1,500 miles taking in at least 3 countries; France, Switzerland and Italy on some of the narrowest, highest passes that the Alps have to offer.

Epilepsy Bereaved is a small charity very close to our hearts, their aim is to improve medical healthcare and support for people suffering from epilepsy and their families as well as providing greater impetus for research into SUDEP and other epilepsy related deaths through government lobby. Epilepsy is one of the most under researched, least understood medical conditions and anything that can be done to improve awareness of the dangers or increase the amount of research funding available is hugely beneficial. There is potential to prevent some of the 500 unnecessary deaths each year of young people so please give as much as you can.

The Team:

Al Allaway – Al spent his formative years testing F1 cars for Ferrari before becoming bored with the pedestrian pace and switching career path for a life in design and marketing. Al co-founded CaB Studios in 2003 with business partner and long time friend Ben Wood.

Ben Wood – The navigator, Ben comes into the team vastly experienced from years of finding his way home from virtually every far flung drinking establishment in the Stourbridge area. We call Ben ‘The Pigeon’ for his incredible homing ability, so Calais to Rome should be a walk in the park.

Kevin Price-Ward – The grease monkey, Kevin from an early age has been mechanically minded moving from lego through mechano before spending two years with NASA working on top secret engineering projects. The urge to build his own company became too strong so he set up his own Multimedia company in 2003 before merging with CaB 2 years later.
