MEET JEOFFREY

- going from strength to strength!

We first met Jeoffrey during his wife's illness, although his shyness made it difficult to engage.

When his wife sadly passed away in January 2017, we reconnected with him. Since being inspired by his trip to Royal Stafford, he's never looked back!
