David Cantle is FORCE’s longest serving Trustee. He became acquainted with the charity’s founders, Chris Rowland and Bernard Simons, in January 1988, just four months after they launched FORCE. David and his wife Jean became ardent supporters following their son’s death from Osteo Sarcoma in March of that year. David recalls FORCE’s first office – a shared room alongside Yarty Ward in the old hospital. Retiring from his career as a senior executive in the concrete industry enabled David to enjoy more leisure time. His interests, apart from his family, are FORCE, travel, photography, family history and regular gym workouts.
