Unsung Hero – Andy Turner

From BBC online: 

Paralympian rower Alastair Mckean is backing the BBC’s Unsung Hero awards as the South East’s regional ambassador.  Alastair knows how important the contributions of unsung heroes can be – he credits his own unsung hero Andy Turner with making him the success he is today.

Alastair told South East Today: "I have known Andy since 1999, and he’s never asked for anything. He always gives up his time for free.  He never sings his own praises and that’s refreshing. He just does it because he loves it, he’d never expect any recognition.

Andy’s been around GB rowing for the best part of 30 years, and people would pay for that kind of experience, but he is happy to give his time to us and all the other clubs for free because he loves seeing people succeed."
