Danny is an officer in the fire service and play regular volleyball including captaining UK fire services volleyball team. He is a keen cyclist and kayaker. He also has a taste for adventure and in the last few years he has walked to the magnetic north pole in the polar race, ridden a motor scooter from John O`Goats to Tarifa in Spain and climbed Kilaminjaro in full fire kit. All to raise money for children in need. This year he has helped to train the latest group of walkers in the polar race and spent 3 weeks in the arctic acting as quarter master, trainer and check point marshall. He is interested in all sports and is also a dedicated father and husband to his family. He is an outstanding character and a great example to young people. He is very single minded and determined in the face of a goal or challenge. A good example of this would be one he had to raise £19,000 in sponsorship to go on the 2007 polar race, he says that was the hardest challenge of all. However he did it and raised money for children in need too. He would be a very fitting person to carry the torch.
