Tell us about your favourite day since you have joined?

My favourite day is always this one. The people make this charity so special - dream children and their families, staff team, volunteers, supporters, ambassadors, trustees - wherever I turn I come across inspiring, committed, hardworking, fun, lovely people who make my day.

What is your unfulfilled dream?

To travel from Alaska to Patagonia in a camper van with Ange my wife and my young kids on board and my older kids joining us for sections of the trip.

What is the most dangerous thing you have ever done?

Sailing across the Solent in a force 7 without a lifebelt, crewing for a less expert sailor than I had thought. A pleasant outing turned into a windy, white knuckle ride that lasted about 2 hours.

What advice would you give your 18 year old self?

You are who you are, get used to it, other people do.

What is your most unappealing habit?

At my age, almost all of them.
