We advise, campaign and care to improve lives of everyone with epilepsy.


Three people die every day in the UK alone from seizure related incidents, thats more than cot death and AIDS combined, and yet no one seems to know about the dangers, we plan to change that.

In 2008 the Farrell family lost its youngest member Felicity Robyn in her sleep to SUDEP (sudden unexpected death from epilepsy) only eight months after being diagnosed with the condition. The family had absolutely no idea of the devasting effects which can come with epilepsy. In 2009 the eldest member Tan moved with his Danish girlfriend from his hometown of Warrington to Copenhagen, Denmark. Determined to do something for people affected by epilepsy and to try and prevent our families story happening again to others…

In 2012 he's...'Bringing Home the Bacon'

The plan is to raise as much money and awareness for Epilepsy Action as we can by cycling from Copenhagen to Warrington in just 14 days. The European bike ride will take in 6 different countries, the London 2012 Olympics and over 1000 miles of hard terrain. If you can help us to achieve this we would love to hear from you, we need sponsors, bikes, support vehicles and promotion. We plan to raise a lot of money for people affected by Epilepsy, if you can help, even in a small way, please get in touch. Wish us luck. Thanks.




Here is a peice about us and the ride which was shown on Granada Reports on 9th July 2012


*Tan and Kevin will be cycling the entire route with support from Seb and Alex who be be cycling in a support capacity and driving the van.
