Longest Day Up 2022

In memory of

Paul Lacey

14th Mar 1963 - 17th Sep 2015

My Story

I will be riding in the Longest Day Up challenge to raise money in memory of Paul Lacey, a close family friend from as far back as I can remember; who loved his toys - including motorbikes. If I'm honest, he was probably a heavy influence on my love for collecting fun toys as he always had something interesting and different. He was such a kind man, funny and a true gentleman. He loved to spend time with his children and grandchildren and would be so proud of them all now. He was always such a positive person, always had a smile on his face. Sadly, in his forties he developed cancer, and despite a brave fight he lost the battle far far too early and passed away at the age of 52. Cancer is such a cruel disease and it’s so important that as much research as possible can be done to discover treatments. I’m pretty sure that if he had the chance he would have joined me on this venture. I’m sure he’ll be with me on the day.
