Jessie’s Fund was established in 1995 in memory of a musical girl who loved playing violin and piano, but died at the age of nine from a brain tumour. Based in York, Jessie’s Fund is a registered charity (no 1045731) which helps children with disabilities and complex needs through the use of music. The charity works with children mainly in hospices and special schools, giving them access to creative music-making and to music therapy. Keith Wright is Director of Music at St Olave's Church in York, and teaches at St Peter's School. The church has strong links with the charity, and Jessie's family lives in the parish. Keith, when not playing, teaching or conducting, is often to be found on a bicycle with other members of the church, out in the Howardian Hills or on the Wolds. Ride London is an opportunity to test his legs and lungs in one of the iconic events of the cycling calendar.

Event details

Keith Wright - cycling 100 miles for Jessie's Fund

Keith successfully completed the RideLondon 100 event on Sunday 31 July. Riding alongside his brother, Steve, he recorded an official time of 6:00:08 - just 8 seconds outside his 6-hour target. However, severe disruption following an accident delayed thousands of riders, Keith and Steve being amongst the luckier participants, in only coming to a standstill for 20 minutes. GPS-tracked times (which paused for the stationary period) show 5:37 for the whole ride, and 5:31 at the 100-mile mark.

Keith rode for Jessie's Fund. The fund helps seriously ill children and those with special needs through the therapeutic and creative use of music. The work is mainly done in children’s hospices and schools for children with special needs. Jessie’s Fund does everything with a team of just four part-time staff: please support them by donating here.
