SPF’s Tristan Davies targets £10,000 in ride for 17-month-old daughter
To celebrate the ongoing recovery of his daughter Octavia, Tristan Davies, a mortgage broker at London-based advice firm SPF Private Clients, is setting out on a five-day Norfolk to Cardiff bike ride in July to support two children’s charities.

Davies has already raised £5,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and The Sick Children’s Trust, which supports family stays minutes from their children’s bedsides during treatment, which will be matched by SPF Private Clients and Howdens.

His daughter Octavia, known as Tavie, contracted strep A sepsis and nearly died at the end of March. She is now in recovery, but will continue her life with disability after amputation of her right lower limb.

The onward drive

On the fundraising website JustGiving, Davies writes: “We wanted to share our story and raise awareness and support for the charities who have supported us and the causes [that] are now very close to our hearts.

“The care by Great Ormond Street Hospital in London has been absolutely unbelievable. Without their efforts, we would have lost our little girl. We have had to lean on any help offered to us, including from the Sick Children’s Trust.”

Davies is hosting a charity bike ride from 26 to 30 July this year. Cyclists will take on 500km in five days between Norfolk and Cardiff via GOSH. Cyclists and non-cyclists are all welcome to come and be involved or support at key points along the route.

Please refer to the Ride for Tavie website for more information on how to get involved.

James Rodea, chief operating officer at SPF Private Clients, said: “To say Tristan and his family have been on, and remain on, a rollercoaster ride of emotions would be an understatement. Most of us cannot envisage the loss of a child; tragically, this nearly became a reality for Tristan and Ceri. The family are all incredibly brave and are coping admirably under pressure; Tavie is clearly a fighter.”

He added: “While all of this has been going on, Tristan has found time to focus on giving back. When he is not on the hospital ward, he has been on a Peloton bike putting in the miles for what sounds like a very challenging ride.”

In 2021, several of SPF’s advisers banded together in a bid to raise thousands for two charities by staying sober for three months.
