Career

Hemmings owns Preston North End F.C. and Trust Inns.

He also owns over 100 racehorses, the most notable being Hedgehunter,[3] who won the 2005 Grand National at Aintree along with Ballabriggs[4] in 2011,[5] and Many Clouds in 2015.

Philanthropy

He is also known for his philanthropy as he provided the funds for the S.A.F.E centre, a project helping the victims of sexual violence in Preston, Lancashire.[6]

In 2009 it was claimed by the Sunday Times Rich List that Hemmings had lost £700m because of a collapse in the price of Royal Bank of Scotland shares, making him only the ninth richest man in the North West and the 178th in the country. The Rich List editor, Ian Coxon, said the drop in Hemmings' fortunes had been caused by the decrease in value of his North West property portfolio as well as his share investment.[7]

National Honours

Hemmings was appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO) in the 2011 Birthday Honours for his service with the Princess Royal Trust for Carers. Now renamed Carers Trust.[8]
