Help Us, Help the O'Sullivans

Our hearts are absolutely broken.

Our dear dad, husband, brother, son and friend Liam O’Sullivan passed away in May after losing his short battle with leukaemia.

Liam left behind his gorgeous six-year-old son Edward and beautiful three-year-old daughter Audrey, as well as his darling wife Ainsley who is expecting their third child this September. 

Liam touched so many people through his 38 years. A dedicated husband, father and friend, passionate teacher, footballer and notorious Seinfeld-quoter, he achieved so much in his life and the world is now poorer without him in it.

While we are all struggling living in a world without Liam, it is obviously even harder for his family and while we know we can't fill the gaping hole that Liam has left in their life, we can help by contributing to cover the costs of day-to-day assistance for the family, so Ainsley can concentrate her time on being the mother that Edward and Audrey need right now. 

As the family prepares for the birth of their newest Sully, there's also the mortgage, childcare and school fees to worry about too. Each donation will help lighten the load of the financial costs and go towards providing assistance in the ongoing cleaning, washing, gardening and shopping costs as well as the appropriate medical support for Ainsley among other things

The last year has been extremely challenging for the family and unfortunately it will be more of the same for the next few years, just different challenges.  We can all make a difference now to help overcome some of these challenges.  Any donation that you can give, big or small, will be much appreciated and the family will be forever grateful.

We also ask that you take the time to share this page via your social media platforms, emails and text messages so we can reach the many and varying networks of Liam's friends to give them the opportunity to help too.

Liam, we miss you already. 

We love you and we are all here to help your family now and forever.

Many thanks. 

Sul's mates.
