I am Proud to be a Patron for Tenovous Cancer Care and take part in rasing awareness and fund raising events for the charity.
At Tenovus Cancer Care our aims are simple. We want to help prevent, treat and find a cure for cancer.
We do this by offering support, advice and treatment to cancer patients and their loved ones. We also promote healthy lifestyles and fund cancer research to find new ways to prevent it, diagnose it, and treat it.
We do this where it is needed most – right at the heart of the community.
We want a future where: –
- Fewer people get cancer
- Everyone with cancer will have equal access to excellent treatment and support
We will work in partnership to deliver innovative research-led cancer prevention, treatment and support in the community to people with the greatest need, initially in Wales.

I was delighted to be involved with the Home Unions Sports Challenge which consisted of teams from England , Ireland , Scotland and Wales all competing together against each other on a sports challenge racing around Britain and Ireland. All by foot, bike, rowing and sailing.
Rugby World Cup winner Mike Tindall and McBusted star Harry Judd are among a host of former international players, celebrities and serving members of the armed forces set to battle it out in the inaugural Rugby Aid charity match, in association with The Sun.

Ride of the Lions
Ride Of The Lions is the ultimate rugby/cycling union. We mix the challenging test of endurance of the long distance bike ride with the friends for life forming camaraderie of the rugby pitch. As ROTL Ambassador Roger Uttley OBE put it, “The Spirit of Rugby on a Bike”.
Ride of the Lions (ROTL) was set up after our inaugural trip to Australia in 2013 when we cycled with the match ball between Melbourne and Sydney – 600 miles of relentless hills in temperatures ranging from below freezing to tropical. You can read more about it HERE. The group of riders contained British & Irish Lions, Wallabies and general rugby/cycling enthusiasts. We all had a blast and vowed that we had to take the concept on and “the spirit of rugby on a bike” would be our guiding principle. We also raised well over £ 100 000k for WWTW, our principal charity.
I was luck enough to cycle around the British and Irish Isles with a truly fantastic group of people including some of the past greats to don the Lions shirt and whom now are passionate about raising money for this great charity. Not only raising the profile of the charity covering 1000km+ but raising funds for this fantastic charity.
