Thrive helps those people touched by a disability to transform their lives through gardening. They help people to rebuild their lives after an accident or illness such as a stroke, heart attack or early on set dementia. They also offer older people practical ways to help them carry on gardening and support good health; showing those with depression or other mental health issues how to achieve a sense of purpose and teenagers how to deal with behavioural problems.

Hi, thanks for visiting my RideLondon 2017 sponsorship page!

I will be riding 100 miles through London and the Surrey Hills on 31st July to raise money for Thrive.

Thrive is an incredible charity which uses gardening as a tool to change the lives of those with disabilities. As someone who works outside, I know just how much being in the fresh air can lift your spirits. Whilst I get my kicks through sport outside, Thrive uses the power of gardening. The clients also make some brilliant Christmas decoration and ornaments, as well as growing their own fruit and veg so be sure to pop down to their next Open Garden on Thursday 27th July at Trunkwell House and see what it's all about.

My link with Thrive comes through my Mum. Mum was diagnosed with the heart condition ARVC at about the time she started working for Thrive. Thrive has been a constant for her during this time and I don't think I've eve known her feel so passionately about a job or group of colleagues.

I am riding to raise money to help Thrive's clients, but also to thank ALL of their staff for the support they have shown and continue to show my Mum.
