Michael Timinis (Pictured, Right), director at London-based food wholesaler St. Mickalos, is swapping his office seat for a bike saddle as he takes part in next year’s Ride London in aid of King’s College Hospital - and we would love for the industry to get behind him and give him the push he needs to hit his £5,000 fundraising target.
As a company, we have worked closely with Michael for 15 years and we were saddened to hear that earlier last year he suffered a subarachnoid brain haemorrhage - a rare type of stroke caused by bleeding on the surface of the brain.
What started as a headache in the gym quickly took a dire turn of events and Michael was rushed to King’s College Hospital in London where, after tests and CT scans, he was diagnosed with the life-threatening condition. After weeks of treatment and rehabilitation, thankfully Michael was discharged. Eight months have passed since that day and Michael is back at work - although not yet back in the gym!
Ever grateful to the staff at King’s College for saving his life, Michael is taking part in Ride London, a 160K bike ride from Central London to Essex on Sunday 24th of May, to fundraise for the hospital.
Michael comments: “The care was incredible and I am so grateful to the team who helped save my life.
“I hope to fundraise as much as possible and help support this amazing team of people at King’s College Hospital!”
