Andrew is the father of William, who was diagnosed with Duchenne in 2016 at the early age of 1, after a random blood test. Andrew graduated from the University of Derby with a BA (Honours) Degree in History, before becoming a director of his family-run business. Since William's diagnosis, Andrew has thrown himself into fundraising, setting up William's Fund with Duchenne UK, to contribute in the quest to find meaningful treatments, and eventually a cure for this condition.
