On the 9th September 2023 Abi Brierley is running the Richmond Marathon to raise money for Sailing for the Disabled - an amazing charity based on the Isle of Man
Her grandparents, especially her grandad, Stuart Brierley, was heavily involved with the charity for many years. Stuart organised and coordinated the collection boxes all across the Island, and in 2017 won an RYA Sailability national award, for Volunteer of the Year for raising over £30,000 for the charity.
Very sadly, we lost Stuart suddnely just before Christmas, and Abi would love to be able to raise money for the charity he loved so much, in memory of him.
Please be generuous of your support of Abi!
