These absolute heroes are driving to Beijing from Ireland for LauraLynn

Sure where would you be goin'?

Champs, the lot of them.

Brian Gleeson, James Costello and Willie Gleeson are packing up and driving to their mate Alan Ho’s wedding in Beijing, and their doing it for the very worthy LauraLynn charity.

For the uninitiated, LauraLynn provides palliative care and support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Their mission statement reads a little something like this:

We plan on driving from Nenagh in Ireland to a wedding in Beijing. Our childhood friend Alan Ho is getting married in Beijing to the lovely Sophie on the 5th of September 2015. Two of three of us are the groomsmen at the wedding.

So we decided the best way to get to Beijing for the wedding was to drive.

Adventure, craic, 13,ooo km and all along fundraising for the incredible foundation Laura Lynn.

We leave 9 weeks before the wedding…
