Thousands Raised in Memory of ‘Inspiring’ Brother and His Aunt, Helen McCrory

Riding all the Way from London to Madrid  for Hugo and Helen

by Lily Ford | Evening Standard | July 21, 2022

An Army officer has raised thousands of pounds for charity by cycling 2,100 kilometres from London to Madrid in memory of his “inspiring” brother and his aunt, actress Helen McCrory. Tom Yaxley, 32, is the brother of Hugo Yaxley and nephew of Damian, as well as McCrory, who died from cancer in April 2021 aged 52.

Mr. Yaxley has embarked on the cycle across Europe for Ride4Hugo, a series of fundraising events organised by friends and family which have earned more than £115,000 for four charities. Through tough gruelling climbs, injury, pain, heat, traffic and SHEEP! Nothing stopped him.

Polzeath Beach

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | August 24, 2021

Damian spent some quality time with his family on Monday, August 23, 2021 for a mass family pilgrimage to Cone Zone in Polzeath, Cornwall for what would have been his late nephew Hugo’s 21st birthday. Looks like he enjoyed an ice cream on a hot summer day at Polzeath Beach before joining in on a game of rugby. Although it is a sad day, it gave the family a chance to reflect on the quality times together and the incredible life Hugo had.

And it looks like Damian’s other brother Gareth Lewis played on the Bobby Axelrod XI team as well!

The winning team was The Bobby Axelrod XI, but really both teams win because the match was for charity!
