Thank you for visiting my site.

Here you can find out about me, my role at Leeds United, my passion for politics and how to support my charity work.

I completed an Arctic Trek in April 2013 and am now preparing to climb Kilimanjaro, row the English Channel and run the London Marathon.

I am undertaking these challenges to raise money for Make A Wish UK, other wide-ranging charities and the HCU Trust, a charity I set up to raise awareness and funds for Homocystinuria, a rare genetic disease that affects my niece and hundreds of people in the UK.

Charity Arctic Trek

Julie and I are thrilled to announce that our trek to the Arctic Circle in April raised almost £27,000 for our chosen charity, Make a Wish Foundation. The husky-drawn challenge across 250 frozen kilometers was in aid of this fantastic cause who gave my niece – Julie’s goddaughter – Sienna, a magical day out at Disneyland Paris.
