His interest in environmental matters was evident from an early age and there is no doubt that he would have thrown himself into the course in typical Robbie fashion in the same enthusiastic way he tackled everything.

We are so pleased to have formed a partnership with Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club thanks to Harry McDonald, Head of Junior coaching who was a friend of Robbie’s, both at school and university.
