I've started up Shopping Channels here and abroad, some of the differences are amazing.
Life in the Balance
Born with a faulty Oesophagus, many operations later at 16 he faced a 50:50 chance to replace the oesophagus with a piece of his Colon. Years later as a Father of two great boys, his wife (Erin Geraghty one of the original 'Angels' on BBC TV series) had triplet daughters, who were born at 28 weeks gestation and spent many months in intensive care.
Also 'Something Completely Different' which may be an option to some organisations.
