David Gunn - Talk Surrey Trustee

David lives in Ottershaw and runs his own property development business. “When my late father passed away after suffering a stroke and living withaphasia for four years, I wanted to do something to help other stroke sufferers and their carers to get the help and support they needed.  As a keen cyclist in 2018 I rode the entire route of the Tour De France, raising over £4,000 for charity, but was looking for something more local.  I came across TALK and thought that the work they did looked amazing.  They were looking for a treasurer, so I was pleased to offer my services.  There’s a lot of administration to sort out – but we’re getting there one step at a time!’’
