Robert Chapman (known around the Otter workshop as Rob) joined us last November to make a surfboard as a gift for his son who’s currently living out in Melbourne, Australia. While he was here, Rob told us about a challenge that he was training for; he was planning on running a lap of Wales (his home nation) in a series of marathons over successive weekends to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association in memory of his friend Tony John. Tony passed away on July 30th last year, and Rob will complete his final run in a couple of week’s time on July 30th, a year to the day since he so sadly lost his friend.
