This year Chris has very kindly selected VITAL as his charity for Ride Warwickshire on 24th August.


It is a 101 mile event organised by UK Cycling. The route has over 1000 metres in climbing which includes Burton Dassett Hill after 71 miles of riding. This is a 600 metre long road with an average gradient of 10%.


Chris has had his own personal experience of mental health problems and has also been a carer for relatives whose lives were severely affected by dementia. He found having an advocate at times of significant stress helped him to articulate his and his family’s needs and to identify the right kind of help. Chris believes that VITAL is providing a crucial role in supporting people experiencing mental health problems.


Chris's Aim

is to raise £1001 for VITAL and to help to publicise the essential work this brilliant charity carries out in Bradford & Airedale.
