I joined SFRS as an On-Call Firefighter in Sept 2015 after 28 years as an Aftersales Manager in the motor industry working for BMW, Mercedes and Porsche and prior to that as a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy
At the same time I began working part-time for Barclays Bank and my local Village Hall in Ixworth to keep me busy
In 2009 I cycled JOGLE “John O’Groats to Land’s End” solo, unaccompanied to mark my 50th birthday and raise £7000 for Autism Charities
When I was asked if I would help The Longest Ride Team logistically undertake the 1000 mile challenge I couldn’t wait to get started and support them during the five month build-up and the 10 day event itself.
All the while helping the team achieve our objective of making a difference to the members of the fire service community in need of support themselves via The Fire Fighters Charity
