From the introduction of the group ‘Swear box’ (which quickly became re-appropriated for Jelly Beans/Babies), and Andy’s many escapades out on the Heath or down the Backstreet bar. With typical candour about his own difficult upbringing and overcoming self-consciousness from visible disability, he took on the world with a smile and humour, even calling himself Handy Andy. A big heart and personality to match, his character has lived large within the group for the past five years. Andy grew up a fighter, in turn he knew exactly how to support others and to put them at ease, from a simple hug, to going out of his way to phone or meet group members and check in on them when he saw the need. He will remain with us all for always.
