Ultimate Aim: Wanting to make a difference to children's lives. 

Background to Kevin Sheppard:

I was brought up and live in Gloucestershire and attended Ingleside School and Cirencester Deer Park School through my youth.
 
When I was just Thirteen years old I lost my brother Andrew to a motor bike accident. This devastated Myself and my family in
coming to terms with the tragic loss and how valuable life is when it's cut so short.  Losing my brother when I was so young was hard during my growing up and took a long time to come to terms with not being able to share life's experiences with someone that's important to you.  I know if my brother was around today he would be immensely proud of my life achievements and my future ambitions. 

Iím lucky to have parents who have given me all the love and support through my life experiences and have given me encouragement to reach out to achieve all my goals & ambitions. I have two adorable nieces that mean the world to me and love spending as much time as possible with them and being apart of their growing up. They both know how to bring a good smile to my face when needed most and I love my close family dearly.
 

After leaving School I joined the Armed Forces and undertook 1 yearís basic training as a Junior Army Soldier. On completion of my training I was to serve with the Royal Corp of Transport (RCT) and posted to Germany for 4 years where I served with my regular unit based in Munster. I was an accomplished triathlete for the British Army and the highlight of my career was when I competed in the GKN Triathlon Championship based in South Cerney, Nr. Cirencester.
 
Upon leaving the Armed Forces in 1992, I joined an engineering firm and was quickly promoted to the UK Customer Services Dept and finally to my current role as a Buyer.

In 2006, I achieved one of my ambitions and trekked through the Himalayas and reached the Everest Base Camp. This was truly a wonderful experience and after reaching the Base Camp I was cold and shattered but the views were truly amazing to see and behold!!
