A Message from our Ambassador - Mrs Lucy Crutchlow15th July 2014
It has taken me many tries to begin to write something down that would explain how I feel about One Step at a Time. It could be dressed up with fancy words and nice phrases that look good but are empty and that goes completely against what I feel about One Step at a Time.
I first met the Mumfords on a cold and wet day when my husband was racing at Silverstone. Silverstone is Cals "home" race circuit and it's full of great fans and people who are full of wonderful wishes and hope for him and I both. During a freezing pit lane walk, when people can take pictures of the bike and the garage and other things of a motorbike nature, the wonderful Tony, one of the greatest people I know, came into the garage with the cutest kid ever. This little dude with a smile that made the day a bit brighter, Mr Alfie Mumford.
Of course like every story like this goes he was impossible to not adore, but it wasn't only Alfie that got to me that day. Alfie was accompanied by the rest of Team Mumford, Mum Lauren, Dad Elliot and Sister Amy (I soon figured out pretty soon is the standard procedure, they are an all in or no one in family). Anyhow, people sometimes think that the lifestyle I live is all glamour and travelling and nice places and beautiful things and it is to an extent, but it's not always easy. I have a family of my own that I see very rarely.... that I miss daily and that love me and Cal regardless of anything. When I seen the Mumfords not only did I love Alfie, but more than that I loved that I seen a family full of love and kindness and pride, a real team in another teams garage. A real snapshot of what's good in life and another little one of lifes examples that all that ever matters is love. They ALL were our priveledge that day even though they thought they were the ones with a priviledge. Now One Step at is Time is my priviledge. I am completely humbled and honoured to be the Ambassador for this charity, like you wouldn't believe. It makes me warm inside.
One Step at a Time is a product of love, determination, spectacular families with their own stories and just good old sticking together. It may only be little but it does BIG things and I for one am so lucky to be part of it.
