I have been a Member of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY) since 2013 and this is a cause close to my heart.

The FANY (PRVC) is an all-female voluntary charity supporting military and civil authorities in times of emergency. We provide highly-trained volunteers who are on call 24/7 to provide immediate and skilled surge manpower for at least 72 hours following an incident as part of the effort to help London recover. Since March 2017, we’ve provided over 1500 hours of support to the Police and other organisations following the terrorist attacks in London and Manchester and the fire at Grenfell Tower.

Originally formed in 1907, the FANY (PRVC) were awarded 17 Military Medals in WW1 and eight in WWII where many FANY were dropped behind enemy lines as part of the Special Operations Executive (SOE). Unlike many of the regiments who fought at Passchendaele, we still exist today and follow in the footsteps of some incredibly brave and courageous women. To find out more about our history visit


Event details

Isobel's cycling from Boston to Miami!

On 21 August I will be taking on a 2000 mile solo cycling adventure down the US East Coast, setting out from Boston and finishing in Miami 6 weeks later.

As well as being an epic adventure, the trip will raise funds for the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY). My target is to raise £2000 – so £1 for every cycling mile!

You can follow my progress and all the action from the trip at:
