Alex Munro Epsom Wilberry Race Mole Valley
Alex Monro, director of Mole Energy Switching (www.moleenergy.com), has picked up the gauntlet by volunteering to ride in a very special horse race, the Pertemps Champions Willberry Charity Derby, being held at Epsom Racecourse, home of the Derby, on Monday 27th August 2018, to raise money for the Willberry the Wonder Pony Charity and The Bob Champion Cancer Trust. Young Hannah Francis founded the Willberry charity once she herself was diagnosed with cancer. Tragically Hannah died in 2016, but her charity continues to inspire people and raise money to support vital research and grant equine related wishes to seriously ill people. Bob Champion was himself both a very successful jockey and a cancer sufferer. Read more
