Torbay Prostate

Support Association

Copyright ©  TPSA  2015              Registered Charity Number  -  1095734

Serving men of all ages, and their partners, through a program of support before, during and after diagnosis.

Originally from the Midlands, my role in Human Resources lead me to move around the UK from North to South and East to West.  Having overseas responsibilities necessitated a fair amount of overseas travel.  Travel is one of my passions and I have been fortunate to travel to numerous countries, the most memorable ones being a 10 week flying around the world trip and a 6 month backpacking around South America in 2008.

I’m also a keen (although not very good) tennis player and play mainly in Newton Abbott.

Music is also another great interest and I enjoy the summer months when I can get in my campervan and head off to music festivals (sometimes as a volunteer steward).

In addition to my leisure activities I run a Coaching and Mentoring business,working with a variety of people of all ages, looking at things such as career management, job seeking skills or business development. I moved to Teignmouth in 2018 and currently due to domestic commitments travel between there and Leicester on a regular basis.

Early in 2018 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer at the age of 59 and elected to have a Prostatectomy in November of that year. Following that I joined a Leicestershire Prostate charity co-ordinating a “Buddy Scheme” where guys who are newly diagnosed or undergoing treatment can be paired up with someone who had gone through the process earlier.

In August 2020 I was elected Chairman of TPSA and am keen to work with my fellow trustees and members to ensure we promote awareness of Prostate Cancer as widely as possible and offer appropriate support to members.
