|Roger in countryman mode. In addition to his huge charitable commitments he is a great expert on trees and aboriculture in general. This picture is courtesy of the Woodland Trust http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/|
This is for his tremendous support in fundraising and training volunteers for St John Ambulance in his home county of Buckinghamshire.
Roger is probably better known for his work on control systems for severely disabled people and his involvement in a wide range of charities that help the severely disabled. Some of his most recent ventures have been to co-found ME Research UK ( www.meresearch.org.uk/ ) in 1999 and Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs ( www.cancerdogs.co.uk/ ) in 2007. The breadth of his activities and committed involvement is quite amazing.
At the same time he provides assistance and advice to the Drapers' Company charitable effort as well as running seminars for charities to assist them in making grant applications.
An indefatigable human being with a passion for helping others. His most recent award is richly deserved.
