Mick is one of Freddie’s first cousins once removed with a striking family resemblance.

Having worked in the private and public sectors as a qualified Civil Engineer during which time he was involved with the feasibility study for the enlargement and dualling of the Suez Canal, and after eleven years looking after two daughters as a father-at-home, he spent the past 20 years working in, and fundraising for, not-for-profit organisations in London. Alongside community centre management , he has worked with homeless and badly housed people, refugees and asylum seekers, including overseeing a Home Office gold star exemplar mentoring project, culminating with five years ending in February 2012 as CEO of Stepping Stones Trust with a turnover in excess of 500k, promoting the rehabilitation of ex-offenders through supported accommodation.

Now retired and having moved to Waltham Forest after 37 years in Islington, apart from his church commitments as a Licensed Lay Minister, Mick is a committed member of the Green Party and a Trustee Director of Bridging the Gap, an Islington based organisation promoting the mentoring of people at risk of offending. Interests include hill walking and DIY.
