Outspoken, outgoing and outstanding when it comes to raising cash for charity, Swasie Turner MBE tells his tale of overcoming adversity in his autobiography, When One Door Closes.
As a Sergeant on patrol with an officer on Merseyside, Swasie was ruthlessly run over by a motorcyclist who sped away from the scene. Swasie was left with life-changing injuries, wheelchair-bound and struggling to cope with his beloved wife’s illness. He was plunged into the depths of despair on the death of his wife, but emerged more determined than ever to devote his life to fund-raising for others in need.
