Tony and Ruth have carried out fundraising activities in memory of the daughter they lost since the death of Emma Jayne to a brain tumour in 1998, just before her 23rd birthday. The couple have raised more than a £130,000  for the Neurological Unit at Hull Royal Infirmary. Emma-Jayne was treated through their annual memorial bikeathon which takes places every year, starting off from The Royal Oak Pub, better known as The Splash in Little Cawthorpe, near Louth.
