Pot created by Thomas Yaxley


Ride4Hugo is a series of events in memory of Hugo Yaxley and his aunt, Helen McCrory. It aims to raise money and awareness for 4 charities that played a big part in their lives. In 2021 we raised over £97,000, we are back for 2022 with 3 big challenges.

On the 1st of May, two of Hugo’s school friends, Harry Dayus and James Gilroy, will be running the Birmingham Half-Marathon.

Then on the 5th of June, friends and family of Hugo and Helen will be doing a bike ride (48 or 101km) through the beauty Wiltshire countryside.

Finally, in July, Hugo’s brother and Helen’s nephew, Tom, will be riding over 2,100km and climbing over 22,000m from The National Theatre in London to the Plaza Mayor in Madrid.

All for our 4 charity partners:

HVH Arts – Helen was the patron of HvH Arts. HvH works with young people providing them with the inspiration and tools to develop lifelong artistic passions.

Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance – It is thanks to the amazing work of the crew of Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance that Hugo’s parents got a chance to say goodbye to him. They rely solely on public contributions, at £3,000 a mission they need everything they can get to keep flying and saving lives.

Place2Be – Mental health was something that was very close to Hugo, he battled through is own issues and not only came out stronger but set about raising awareness and money for this issue.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance – It is thanks to the incredible work of Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance that Minna (Hugo’s girlfriend) not only survived the car accident but has no life changing injuries. They like Dorset and Somerset are there when people need them the most.

Thank you for all your generous support from all the Ride4Hugo crew.
