First link with OAB:
I first heard about OAB through my doctor at Oxford Eye hospital, as I am under Prof Downs. The OAB have been truly great to me with councilling which was amazing and truly helped me. They have also helped with aids too such as using my smartphone and computer, plus a talking watch, I can’t thank there service enough.
Hobbies: I enjoy all outdoor sports such as cycling, horse riding, running, power rising, ice skating.
Career:I started my own business catering in 2004 called Delicious of Wantage and Didcot also named Delicious Events Oxfordshire. I love this work doing weddings, birthdays, celebrations and other events. I have done wedding tv; three grand weddings which was a lot of fun and I also won the competition. I do all aspects of catering like hog roasts, sit down meals, buffets, crêpes and chocolate fountains. We also offer dressing of events too.
Working with sight problems has not been easy but I just pushed myself and delegated others to do things for me. I will still keep my hand in catering sometimes but due to sight issues and things changing in the world I sold the company in 2020, now is a new chapter and to see what happens.
James has such a great attitude and is always keen to get involved in things we are doing. We can’t wait to get him involved with us in future.
