Good Causes

This page steps away from motorsport for a bit in order to publicise some very good causes.


My girlfriend, Sian Owens, is planning to undertake a skydive in order to raise money for Sightsavers, a charity dedicated to eradicating preventable blindness in the developing world.

A donation of just 5p will protect someone from river blindness for a year.

A donation of £17 will give an adult a cataract operation.

If you are interested in making a donation to help Sian throw herself out of a plane, please give through Just Giving, or visit the Facebook page Sian has set up to help collect donations.


Sian’s original skydive this summer was cancelled due to poor weather. However, the jump will take place at some point so please keep the donations coming!
