Jon is a leading volunteer on the Public Presentation Team, he said, “I have enjoyed my visit to the Cardiff Branch of the CSRF and we had a very lively, interactive session with plenty of audience participation. I hope that some of my advice will have struck a chord with the members and they can enjoy later life to the full with their club, while also being mindful to the dangers of senior fraud and deception "
