For 25 years I worked for a national children’s charity, I took early retirement, to work self-employed giving me time to be the Chairman of MREW.

In1970 I joined Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team. I have been a Search and Rescue Dog handler. I spent 10 years as Team Leader and 3 years as their Chair. I have been Chair and Operational lead of the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation, of which I am still an incident manager. I joined MREW management team in 2005 as the chair of the fundraising group and in 2009 became a Trustee, which is a role I still hold. In 2013 I took on the role as Chair of MREW. A job I am very proud of doing.
