My first meaningful participation in charity work was as a member of Round Table but that was very localized. I became aware of the Karibuni Children through the Chairman, John Cotton, a friend of over thirty years. In 2009 I raised some money for Karibuni by trekking across Spain and that led to my joining a visit to Kenya to see the projects. That visit convinced me that this is a charity to which I should contribute more time and effort.
Working life finished in 2003 and was all spent in banking in a variety of businesses within the UK. Whilst over sixty, I still enjoy squash and hill walking although the theatre is increasingly becoming a more comfortable hobby.
