Former England International Tom May is one of Oaks' most famous 'sons' and has been hugely supportive of the Club as one its most prolific alumni, and recent senior player. Now's our chance as a Club to give some of that support back.
In support of Down's Syndrome Association, Tom is cycling 24-hours on a Watt Bike from 4pm on Friday 6 October and will finish the next day at 4pm. What's more there's another bike alongside Tom and any moral support is welcome too.
Here's the story behind the cycling challenge, in Tom's own words: "On 28 April this year, my beautiful little niece was born in Pembury Hospital in Kent. A huge high for everyone in our family. Another little girl. Within hours my sister Lucy noticed something wasn't quite right. Over time it became clear that Tallulah had Down Syndrome which was a massive surprise to everyone, including my sister and brother in law Mike.
"A life changing moment for us all but there is no doubt that little Tallulah will be loved so much even though there will be immensely tough times for everyone, especially Lucy & Mike..."
