Andrew is an active Rotary member and also exercises his penchant for beauty, tranquility and excitement by sailing a 7.9 metre yacht off the southern coast of Cornwall and trekking mountains in search of rock scrambles, exposed ridges and panoramic views!  These pursuits encouraged him in 2009 to undertake a 1,200 mile walking, cycling and kayaking challenge from the Scilly Isles to the Shetland Islands to raise money for schools for disabled children in Uganda. More recently (2016) he raised funds for a borehole project at a school in Gambia which is now operational, providing clean water for current and future generations of staff and students.
