Roo Panes

The singer/song writer Roo Panes heard about James’ story and honoured him by giving him the beautifully moving song he had written entitled ‘Soldier of Hope.’ The song has now become a key part of James’s presentations to parents and staff.

He’ll often choose to finish a talk by playing the song – this regularly results in tears from the audience!

Nick Vujicic

– his belief that ‘we are all made for a purpose’ .

David Shone

James’s late Father, David Shone. “Life’s about service! It’s not self that matters but others.”

Bob Burford

Bob Burford’s book, ‘Half Time’. He describes movingly the idea of the separating of our lives in to two halves.

The first is driven by SUCCESS. The second by SIGNIFICANCE. This can be translated as moving from SELF to OTHERS.

Sir Anthony Sheldon

Sir Anthony Seldon, patron of ‘I Can & I Am’.

He has been a friend, supporter and an inspiration to James in so many ways.
