CME Medical manufacture the electric pump used by Justin to regulate his intravenous nutrition. If this doesn’t work then Justin doesn’t get fed. Justin is attached to his life support system whilst kayaking. This means that if, please no, Justin ends up in the water accidently, we need to ensure all the medical kit stays dry. The ruck sack Justin wears that contains the whole life support system is waterproof as far as rain is concerned, but not for submersion. So, CME Medical are looking into using nano coating technology on Justin’s pump to make it fully waterproof.

CME Medical is the fastest growing specialist infusion company in the UK, providing products for medical specialties including pain management, palliative care, oncology, nutrition and other clinical applications. For more information, visit or call 01253 894646.

Guy Portelli

Guy PortelliGuy Portelli worked as a sculptor in the special effects dept for the BBC TV before setting up own studio in 1981. Commissions followed and more recently Guy took his Pop Icons project  to the BBC Dragon’s Den programme,  resulting in his being backed by James Caan, Peter Jones and Theo Paphitis.  Heart Throb, The Golden Age of the Pop Icon was staged at The Mall Galleries in London in June 2009. This collection featured 18 icons from Frank Sinatra up to Amy Winehouse.

This collection includes a piece entitled Imagine, representing John LennonJustin with Guy Portelli's Imagine/John Lennon and is a particular favourite of Justin’s sister Victoria. Justin is a lifelong Beatles fan so Guy feels this is the most appropriate sculpture to help the project. The edition is of 10 in nickel plated bronze of which 9 are available for sale. There are also 2 in the original bronze version. For any sales made through the Gutless Kayaking website or associated events Guy will donate 10% of the £9000.00 sales price.
