Tim’s 54321 Cycle

Event: Tim’s 54321 Cycle

Date Held: May 24th, 2019

Organiser: 54321 Cycle

Venue: France

Tim Driscoll, an electrician from Pontprennau, is taking part in a 200 mile cycle ride in aid of Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales supporting men with benign prostate disease and prostate cancer.

Tim, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2015, is a keen supporter of the charity and has used his artistic talents to raise funds for the charity. As part of his treatment, Tim enrolled on the Stampede trial at Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff. Clinical trials don’t guarantee a positive outcome for patients, but fortunately for Tim, Stampede has kept his cancer under control. Tim has been sharing his story through social media and was featured on the special BBC Radio Wales programme ‘Project Prostate: Welsh Men & Prostate Cancer’.

Recently Tim kindly donated a number of items for the charity’s Ambassadors Lunch including signed memorabilia for the event’s auction and caricatures of Welsh sporting legends for a raffle game on each table. Tim regularly draws caricatures of celebrities especially Welsh rugby players, a sport that he is hugely passionate about. Each caricature takes around two to three hours to complete to be of the highest quality. Tim’s artwork is mostly done by hand but he has recently started using digital programmes as well. Tim has been lucky to meet some of the subjects he has drawn and had some of his art signed.

The 54321 cycle is a 200 mile cycle ride taking place from Friday 24th May to Tuesday 28th May. The European trip involves cycling through towns and villages in Normandy, France including Cherbourg, Barneville Carteret and Granville. Tim has been training hard for the event with regular cycle rides around South Wales to build up his stamina and mileage ahead of the big challenge.

Tim is raising funds at work and online on his JustGiving page.
