Jo and Hannah's Irish Cycling Challenge

Event dates: 21st July 2023 – 28th July 2023

Jo and Hannah O’Sullivan are raising money for Birmingham Irish Cycle Appeal

Our story

Whilst most Mum and daughters opt for a relaxing spa day together, we've somehow found ourselves attempting to cycle 909 kilometres across the whole of Ireland...in 6 and a half days. We'll be cycling on Ireland's notorious roads all the way from Mizen Head, West Cork up to Malin Head, Donegal, starting on the 21st July 2023. The Birmingham Irish Cycle Appeal supports multiple charities and we'll be fundraising for UHCW Charity, specifically to help build a new Bereavement Suite for the Maternity Wards at UHCW hospital.

In England, 1 in every 200 births after 24 weeks of pregnancy, is stillborn. Currently, the Maternity Department at UHCW has nowhere that mothers can deliver their stillborn babies in a private, quiet space. Instead, they have to give birth on the labour ward, alongside those whose babies are born alive and well. This is clearly distressing for grieving parents and their families, so we're raising funds to help create a sound-proofed, peaceful bereavement suite, with specific compassionate aftercare.

We'll be packing our waterproofs ready for any weather that the Wild Atlantic Way throws at us, hoping to raise enough funds to make cycling every hill, mountain and tedious incline worthwhile for the Maternity Wards.

Any donations will be gratefully received and Hannah has vowed to put the bike straight back in the shed where it belongs once this challenge is over.

Thank you for reading and any donations you're able to give,

Hannah and Jo x
