In terms of my day job, I’m a regional director for a national house building and construction business and out of hours, I’m a keen biker taking every opportunity to explore the world on two wheels with my better half, Katy.
We used to play cricket, ‘kerby’ and football in the street when we were little kids, and I now play football on Saturday and Sunday for Kelsall and Tarvin Rex respectively.
I aim to continue George’s passion for helping others and inject the foundation with his love for life.
I have recently qualified as a scuba diver to join the rest of the family ” if you can’t beat them, join them!” I hope my previous charity experience will help the Foundation maximise its fundraising so that the communities that George loved so much will benefit.
I love fun and spending time with our family especially our grandchildren, Oscar and Isla. I am passionate to ensure that the Foundation is as diverse and all-inclusive as George was.
I currently work in the Coffee Industry and outside of work I enjoy the vast majority of sports with a particularly keen interest in both motorsport and football. I am most proud of my wonderful family which includes my beautiful wife Sophie and our children Oscar and little Isla who together are a constant source of joy.
I’m afraid, I’m the irresponsible one who provided the wooden swords with which to beat the living daylights out of one another and it tended to be me that suggested something daft like rock climbing. Nowadays, I’ve swapped the heights for the depths and I’m happiest when scuba diving on a shipwreck somewhere deep, cold and dark.
Outside of work, I follow football and just like George, I am a massive Liverpool FC fan. Although my past experience with charity work is minimal, I am passionate about raising money that can be pumped back into the local community for those who can benefit from it.
Day to day life consists of running my own business designing and installing kitchens – something that George helped me with during summer (and of course was good at!). The Foundation is a means of saying thank you to the community that supported us so much through the most difficult time of our lives.
My full-time job is a salesman and I have a real interest in business, which is where I plan to continue my career. I have a real passion for making a difference, and the George Heath Foundation really can.
In my day job, I am the Chief Executive of Jigsaw Medical & eJigsaw, both of which support The George Heath Foundation.
Since The George Heath Foundation’s inception in 2016 I have been a very passionate supporter of the work that has been done for our community and I have run the Chester Half Marathon three times to raise funds #ForGeorge
Since graduation with a teaching degree in 2017 I have taken up a full time role teaching year 3 children and in Autumn 2017 I was invited to become a trustee of The George Heath Foundation – a role that I was delighted to take on as I am passionate to continue to ensure that George’s inclusive and extensive community benefits from the work that the Foundation undertakes.
I love spending time in Wales at my weekend home on Anglesey, and during the week I work in the Finance department of Jigsaw Medical. In a former job I spent a number of years co-ordinating charity events for the bank that I worked for, and so you will definitely see me in a hands on role at George Heath Foundation events!
