Tim, has such passion for life, he inspires all around him to believe in themselves. As my stepfather he has embraced me and my children into his life, he teaches my sons wonderful things; birds, nature, books, music leading the way to them becoming wonderful adults in coming years. The world needs more Tims to inspire and motivate our children. Tim works tirelessly for many charities; climbing Kilimanjaro (Jordan Jay trust), trekking the Inca trail (Children's Society), running the New York marathon (Alzheimer's Society), Leeds half marathon (St. Gemma's Hospice) and fundraises on behalf of cancer research. To have Tim represent GB by carrying the torch would show the world what fantastic people our country has. Tim has changed the lives of so many people; my sons and mother, people who work for him, but especially those he has never met, whose lives have been enriched by his selfless efforts.
