Charities

The Injured Jockeys Fund


My love affair with horse-racing is as long and as strong as that with cricket. It began with my brother Ralph and me cutting grass for his God Mother, Mrs Skeffrey's, horses, then being driven down to the race track at Caymanas Park to deliver it. Since then I have loved being around horses and every aspect of racing. Because of this life long love and the many, many friends I have in that world, the Injured Jockey's Fund is very close to my heart.

Colon Cancer Charities


Since the untimely death of Malcolm Marshall from colon cancer in Barbados at the young age of 41, I have supported Bowel cancer charities too.

Malcom played for the West Indies from 1976 to 1991 and held the record as its leading wicket taker, at 376, until Courtney Walsh passed the mark in November 1998.

He also took 157 wickets in one-day internationals, and more than 800 for his English county side, Hampshire.

Malcolm was one of the world's greatest fast bowlers, a great thinker and a well-balanced individual who gave his best whether batting or bowling.
