The name of the Foundation comes from James’ favourite bird, the puffin, and the ‘magic’ needed to overcome this unfortunate situation.
Since his first encounter with a Puffin on the Westermann Islands of Iceland in 2004, James has had a special affinity with Puffins. The first Puffin James met up close had only one leg and was dubbed Peter Puffin.
Since then an embodiment of Peter has travelled far and wide with James. Quite the well-travelled Puffin, Peter and James have fished the mountain brooks of Scotland and surfed the coral atoll breaks of the Maldives.
Equally at home on a Berlin dance floor as marlin fishing out at sea off Broulee, Peter is a versatile Puffin. Not unaccustomed to a night out Peter has also made quite a few friends the world over and nursed many a sore head in the morning.
Peter Puffin is the essence of fun, compassion and adventure to James and has been by his side since the accident.
