We are incredibly grateful to Conor Leahy and his wonderful friends for the cycle ride they organised in memory of Conor’s son, Logan, to raise money for First Touch.
Conor tells their story here:
We’ve very proudly completed our charity cycle of 70 miles in total from London to Camber Sands and raised over £4,000 with Gift Aid in memory of our late son, Logan.
In March of this year, me and my wife Laura, welcomed our beautiful baby boy into the world, it was however a lot earlier than expected at just 24 weeks and 4 days into the pregnancy.
We had 8 amazing days with him in the St George’s Neonatal ICU, getting to know our little Logan, but unfortunately Logan developed Necrotising Enterocolitis (NEC) and in the early hours of the morning on the 20th of March our baby boy passed away. Eternally grateful to the staff at St George’s who allowed us to hold our son as he drifted away.
I decided to raise money for First Touch and in memory of Logan to cycle from Sutton to Camber Sands as we said the first place we would take Logan on holiday is Camber Sands, our favourite beach in the UK. Thankfully, I had some incredible friends that have supported me on the journey and to honour our son’s memory. The gratitude we feel with all the support is something we will carry with us forever.
