"The two things that were commonplace in the village were bikes as everyone had one, and the other thing that meant the world to me was, strangely enough, a balloon.
Maybe it was because I was an only child and would have to create my own amusement when all my friends went in for the night and because my mum banned kicking a ball inside the house, I would play a safer form using a balloon. The spin off for using a balloon was that I could also play slow motion football in the hallway.
Today the balloon has taken on a different role in my minds eye. It has become a symbol for freedom, hopes and dreams.
It is also the symbol for the Bubble foundation (which I am proud to be a patron) at the RVI hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne who care for the needs of children who are born into this world without an immune system.
So to celebrate all the people that helped shape me into the man I am today I have painted “Happy days”. May all your dreams, hopes and aspirations continue to be a part of you own journey through life and may they never leave you."
