Champak Dhanani (1958 - 1961)

I was born in Thika, Kenya, educated at Thika Primary and then Eastleigh Secondary in Nairobi, from which I left in 1961 to head for London. From 1962-68, I started my career in finance by undertaking my accountancy training with Bass-Charrington Breweries and Mobil Oil. In 1969 I was inspired to set-up my own business in London and therefore started an import and export business in textiles. The business expanded and I opened my first retail shop on Wandsworth High Street, followed by another shop in a large shopping mall in South London. Now due to age and eyesight difficulties, I am retired and enjoying a simple life participating in charity work, learning, reading and visiting different countries.

I am married to Usha and we live in Southfields, South London with our two daughters, Lisa and Nina. I have very fond memories of Eastleigh especially playing in the volleyball and cricket teams. During this time I also played for Kenya in the junior tennis championships and coincidentally I now live very close to the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis championships. I made plenty of friends at Eastleigh and it is my time there that really inspired me to forward my career in London. I was delighted to hear about this reunion and I am looking forward to meeting people who also share fond memories of Eastleigh. So when you read this and would like to catch up on the good old times, please get in touch.
