Cyclists’ backing for injured Cross Roads horse rider
2:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in News
Cyclists will this weekend raise vital money for a charity helping a Cross Roads horse rider recover from a serious brain injury.
Fiona Rook fell off her horse last year.
The 40-year-old is being cared for by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust in Leeds.
Her brother, Simon Rook, and friends Victor Blackman and David Anderton are taking on the trek to raise money for the trust.
They will be sponsored to ride 135 miles along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal on Saturday.
The trio have cycled regularly together for the past three years.
Simon, Victor and David hope to raise enough money to buy something to help the residents of Daniel Yorath House in Leeds – a neurobehavioural rehabilitation centre – which Fiona attends.
Anyone who wishes to sponsor the ride should contact Victor on (01535) 643776.
