Rob Walker, known best for his TV sports commentary and as the Official Goodwill Sports and Tourism Ambassador for Uganda, has dedicated himself to making a difference, to raise money for Jessie May.

From 5th- 23rd June Rob Walker is cycling and running from John O’Groats to Land’s End in memory of three of his close friends and his son’s best friend, all of whom tragically passed away in the last 18 months.

The Matchroom Sport Charitable Foundation will pledge £25,000 to Jessie May, IF Rob Walker can reach the same target during his Absent Friends Tour.

Putting it simply, if the Jessie May tally reaches £25,000 then Matchroom Sport Charitable Foundation will double it to a massive £50,000!!!

We will benefit so much from these kind of donations as this is what keeps us going. We are so grateful for what Rob is doing and we are with him all the way!

Every day on the trip he will be giving away 4 bottles of champagne along the way, so that people can toast to his friends. And, anyone who donates will automatically be entered into a draw to win an all-expenses paid holiday to Uganda!

He will be meeting plenty of famous faces along the way as well, and if you want to join him and do a few miles in memory of your friends, please get in touch with Rob or drop us a message.
