David Sax
David Sax
Local businessman, owner of Maison Sax. Launched the 10 Icons + 10 top restaurants Auction initiative for YCT and organised a black tie ball at the West Hants Club, raising over £17,000.
“In 2016 David celebrated a very serious birthday, the sort of birthday that sends grown men into crisis and/or despair. So rather than buying a Harley Davidson or trying to run a marathon (where the difficulty would be that I’m built for comfort not for speed) I decided to devote my spare time over the that year into raising money for the Youth Cancer Trust, by doing something that I have a real passion for.”

A prece of “my life so far” from Colin…
“Got the running buzz at 10 and clock up 65yrs of running this year,with a fair degree of success. I also had an exciting Police career (37yrs)in Dorset, mainly in CID retiring as Chief Inspector at Bournemouth.
For the last 35yrs or so my charitable focus has been to support causes both national and local and with “my team” we have raised a considerable amount.
10 years ago a dear friends daughter (Kerry) died of cancer at just 31. Kerry’s cause was The Youth Cancer Trust so it became mine in her memory, through competing in/organising many running events and giving talks to numerous organisations.
My talk theme is “my life so far”, embracing its many aspects and turns and incorporating much humour. It has been well received to date. I am also an experienced Toastmaster (www.colinfrytoastmaster.co.uk) for Weddings, Corporate and other events again raising funds for YCT.
In all I am able to do, I realise how fortunate I have been and I am so pleased to be associated with YTC, it is very dear to my heart.
In 2001 East Dorset D.C. kindly gave me a “Special Community Service Award” and in July 2012 I was very privileged to carry “The Olympic Torch” during the Torch relay through Winfrith, Dorset an experience I will never forget.
