Charity founder salutes inspiring Atlantic rowers

A FORMER soldier from Henley has told how he organised an Atlantic row by four injured servicemen for charity.

Paddy Nicoll, who lives in Remenham Hill, is chairman of the trustees of the River and Rowing Museum and son-in-law of Sir Martyn Arbib, who founded Invesco Perpetual.

He founded the charity Row2Recovery in 2011. It gives injured servicemen the chance to row for exercise and take on challenges.

Mr Nicoll is a former captain in the Black Watch and also ran a security company in Baghdad.

Row2Recovery organised for four men, including two injured soldiers, to take part in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, starting in December.
