Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The Injured Jockeys Fund is a quiet but massively effective way of supporting anyone in need who has had a involvement in racing.

I have supported them all my life. From throwing a fist-full of coins into a bucket leaving a p-to-p to buying the odd tie/mug when i see the IJF stand.

Then, in Oct 2008 my Mother was crushed by a horse charging a gateway and has been left paralysed. Only then did I begin to get an insight into just how  amazing this organisation is. The amount of support and advice has been so instrumental in being able to adjust to a complete change of life. It has been a very long and rocky road with lots of different memories but the one which will always stay with me was mother receiving a Christmas hamper from the IJF  soon after it happened and her saying to me that she couldn't believe how good it felt to feel part of something.

Having seen all the rehabilitation centres and how affective they are in every aspect of recovery from the top jockeys to all the lads and lasses it is a truly remarkable charity.  I ask you to be as generous as possible in my support for them.
