Drew Falconer is the most inspirational, kindest, popular and courageous person I know. Drew suddenly went blind at the age of 26 (1984). Unable to carry on with his profession in architecture, Drew had to cope with this dramatic change, begin his life again and retrain to become employable. Over a number of years Drew learnt braille, gained several computer qualifications, culminating in graduating with a BSC(hons) in Business Computing from Abertay University in 1996. Drew now works as a computer programmer with Scottish Widows. For over 13 years he has singularly made the long bus journey from Perth to Edinburgh no matter the weather. Drew also possesses great kindness and compassion. Every year Drew has raised substantial monies for various charities. Drew won the 2010 Lloyds Banking Group "charity gold medal" for the best individual fund raiser (£25k). Drew also completed a blind challenge expedition in 2010 hiking to Mt. Everest base camp, raising over £5k for two charities In 2011 Drew will, with already obtained approval from Brian Soutar of the Stage-Coach Group, learn to and drive a bus to raise more money for charity. I have never heard Drew complain about going blind ,only about how he plans to meet any challenges life puts before him. All who meet Drew are inspired by his optimism, cheerfulness, resourcefulness, kindness and courage.
