My story

At the end of July, I will be cycling 600 miles on an incredible journey along the west coast of Ireland together with over 30 others and a fantastic backup team with Birmingham Irish Cycle Appeal (BICA).

I would greatly appreciate your support to raise vital funds and awareness for a fantastic selection of charities. The knowledge that every pedal stroke is contributing to a great causes will fuel my determination and make the journey that much more meaningful.

Please remember to tick the gift aid option at no extra cost, that allows tax relief and additional funds to the charities.

This year we are raising money for:

Soft UK.

Soft UK supports the families of children affected by Edward’s and Patau’s Syndrome (also known as Tristomy 18 and Trisomy 13). Both conditions are considered to be life limiting, and children affected will encounter a variety of developmental and heath difficulties. Soft UK provides support and assistance to the families of children affected by these conditions.

Birmingham Hospice

Birmingham Hospice is the new name for St Marys Hospice in Selly Park, and the John Taylor Hospice in Erdington. The two hospices merged in 2021, and they are now the primary provider of hospice care in Birmingham. Birmingham Hospice cares for almost 1,000 patients on average every day, at their hospice sites, in the community or in their own homes.

Laura Lynn Hospice

Laura Lynn Hospice is a hospice and care facility based in Dublin. They provide palliative care for children with life limiting conditions, and residential care for children and young adults with complexed care needs and disabilities. They also provide a support services for the children and their families, to ensure they can achieve the best possible quality of life.


BUMBLEance is the children’s ambulance service of Ireland. They provide safe and comfortable transportation for Ireland’ youngest patients as they travel between their homes and hospitals, hospices, treatment centres and respite centres. These can extend to hundreds of miles, and BUMBLEance aims to distract, comfort and entertain children during these journeys.

Orlatih Quinn

Orlaith Quinn is a 7 year old from Birmingham who has Cerebral Palsy. Through the help of her family and the charity NICE, she has made huge progress with her development and mobility. She is now aiming to make further progress with the use of a specialist Knee Brace Rehabilitation device, which her parents hope will help her to be able to stand and walk.

Buncrana Childrens Charity

The Buncrana Childrens Charity provides services to sick and disadvantaged children in the Inishowen peninsular in Donegal. They focus on three services; Financial support to sick children and their families, a ‘goodie bag service’ that can be sent to sick children in hospital, and the ‘Smile of a Child Wish, where they try to fulfil the wish of a sick child.

Kingsbury SEN Academy

Kingsbury Academy is a special needs school in Coventry, which provides support for pupils aged 11-14 with significant learning disabilities. The school is fundraising to provide a new onsite playground, following their old playground being condemned as unsafe in 2021.

Midwifery Bereavement Facilities UHCW Hospitals

The Maternity Department at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire currently deliver over 5,000 babieseach month, but have no separate facilities for families who suffer a stillbirth. The UHCW team have designed a Maternity Bereavement Suite, where families who suffer a stillbirth would have privacy and comfort in soundproofed rooms, away from other new families. These facilities will include provisions for partners and siblings to grieve together, and will provide bespoke facilities for specialist staff to support families at this saddest of times.
