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 Cor’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.
