Commenting on the news, fellow contender Mr. Simon Cavalier-Jones, East Midlands CF Deputy Chairman, told this London Spin,
"Patrick has been a loyal servant to Conservative Future for many years, it is a measure of the man that he has chosen to focus his efforts on such a noble cause. His plans to support Help for Heroes is fantastic and can only benefit all concerned. I hope all CF members will support his drive to raise money for a group of men and women who do a great service for all of us."All funds raised from the hustings events will go directly to the Help for Heroes charity. It is understood that Sullivan will call on all candidates to do more to help CF Social Action projects.
