As a very young publishing art director, I created my first children’s book. ‘Silas, the first pig to fly’, became a bit of a classic, selling across the world. Forty years later, I’m publishing a new edition with all-new illustrations, and plan to donate half of the profits to the Orchid Men’s Cancer charity.
When I moved to Billericay in 2004, I saw the Orchid Cycle Ride advertised. It was on the anniversary of the date my father died of prostate cancer – so it was a no-brainer, I participated, of course. I don’t think I have missed a ride since.
