HobdayHero Wristband Now On Sale

In support of our new Patron Ben Hobday we have launched a new HobdayHero band.

Ben is undoubtedly one of our heroes. He credits all of his supporters with being his.

He received a great deal of support across social media throughout his treatment – something which he credits with helping him get better.

We are hoping that his fans will continue to support him and the charity,  and help us raise funds towards our goal of employing our next Outreach Nurse.

The bands are £2.50 and can be bought direct from our Ebay store.

Ben Hobday Announced As New Patron

On June 29 2015 popular international events rider Ben Hobday, 28, was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, a very aggressive form of cancer, which forms in the lymph glands. After an intense 3 month battle against the disease Ben went into remission in September, and returned to the saddle shortly after.
A mere one year later Ben has agreed to be a Patron of our charity in the hope that he can use his journey for good.

We are incredibly proud to have Ben as a Patron for our charity. He is just one of the most inspiring people you will ever meet. What is truly humbling about him is that he credits other people for giving him strength and helping him maintain his positivity, but what he doesn’t know is just how much strength and positivity he’s given other patients just by being himself and sharing his story.
