Story

On 13th June 2020, I will be undertaking the daunting but exhilarating challenge of racing 1 mile and 1 furlong around York Racecourse in front of a 20,000+ crowd.  

I have set a personal target of £15,000 which seems a daunting task in mid January! My training schedule has begun; I started riding at trainer Tim Easterby's at Great Habton on 7th January and will be there regularly for the next 5 months. 

Cancer can affect anyone at any time and I, like many have seen the consequences. My cousin (and godfather) was taken too young, in a matter of months by cancer, but Macmillan’s support to the close family was an incredible support. 

A key member of the family business, working with us for 48 years was sadly taken by this horrid disease on 24th December 2019. I would like to give something back and work hard to raise money for a fantastic cause. 

Thanks for supporting my fundraising. Macmillan Cancer Support is here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support.
