Chas qualified as a dentist from the University of Glasgow in 1989 and has since become partner in a family dental practice in Port Glasgow where he has held the position of Principal Dentist and sole owner in the practice since 1991. Throughout his life Chas has been a keen rugby union player and served as President of Glasgow Hawks rugby club.

Chas was inspired to help FYF after being amazed at Corโ€™s resilience in the face of her adversity following her quadruple amputation in 2013. He became a Trustee when the charity was founded, and has been overwhelmed by the way Cor has used her circumstances to effect positive change in the way amputees are viewed by society.
