About Us

The Trustees

Our core team at the moment is small but it will grow as the charity develops. We look forward to meeting you at future events throughout the year. If you see us on the road come and say hi, we all love any excuse to have a cuppa and a chat.

Paul Oxborough (Trustee)

I feel very proud to have been a founding member of Mental Health Motorbike, the challenge is now to take it to a new level so it can become a recognised household name and the place bikers come to for meaningful support.

In my day job I develop international education programmes across the world with young people, teachers and non-formal education professionals and enjoy bikes (surprise surprise), reading, walking and surrounding myself around interesting people.

 

Mark JJ Johnson (Trustee)

Passion all my life has been riding motorbikes, just love bikes & biking. I enjoy the creativity, diversity and passion motorbikes can evoke from classic and modern to custom and cruiser. I am drawn into the positivity motorcycling can bring to our mental health, it allows me to effectively deal with the daily stress of life, create friendships for life, make healthy decisions and live life to its fullest. 

I currently work and manage a large department for young people with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) at a further education college in the East Midlands, supporting them and their families to gain skills for life. My previous life before was a senior graphic designer and illustrator for Rolls Royce Aerospace doing doodles of jet engines and a design & publicity manager for a large tyre company.

Married with 2 fab children, a dog, caravan, love listening to classic rock music and when time, fishing!

Andy Elwood (Trustee)

After 20 years working in the emergency services, Andy decided that focusing on mental health would save more lives than continuing to dangle under rescue helicopters as a paramedic.  He creates safety and trust by sharing his own vulnerability and gives a unique ‘behind the scenes’ insight into life and death situations on Search and Rescue helicopters, on the Afghanistan battlefields and to the potential downward spirals of 21st Century life. Andy delivers the Mental Health First Aid instruction for Mental Health Motorbike & is proud to be a trustee for the charity.

Alex Tambourides (Trustee)

Hi my name is Alex, I’m the CEO of a Mental Health Charity and I’ve worked in the field for over 20 years. As a biker I’m relatively new, but very enthusiastic owner of a Honda Hornet and an outstanding black leather biker jacket.

Ken Finlayson (Trustee)

I feel privileged to be part of The MHMOTORBIKE journey.

Having spend a lifetime in Dealer operations B2B for vehicle manufacturers, I’m hoping some of my experience can be put to good use.

I’ve been an enthusiastic biker for more than a few years, my current bike being a Triumph Tiger which is proudly displaying a MHFA badge.
