Frank, handyman at Southampton celebrated his 65th birthday in style. An ex fireman, he joined the team nearly three years ago and more than keeps them and the licencees on their toes – he still runs regularly and is due to compete in his 10th London marathon later this month, raising money for the centre’s charity, the Honeypot.
