Professional chef Hayden Groves first became involved with Cure Leukaemia in 2015 when he cycled the full Tour de France alongside Geoff Thomas. Hayden, who has no personal link to blood cancer, saw the importance of the charity’s work and has been involved ever since. He took part in the 3 Tours Challenge in 2017 and wrote a unique, award winning cookbook, ‘Back In The Saddle’ after the event combining cycling and recipes from Italy, France and Spain.
Thanks to the generosity of Hayden and his, then employers Baxterstorey, 100% of each book sold has come to Cure Leukaemia raising tens of thousands for Cure Leukaemia. Hayden also went on to take part in ‘The Tour 21’ in 2021 and 2022 and is an integral part of the #CLFamily.
