ANDYS – the life­style brand founded by Bri­tish broth­ers, Rob and Paul Forkan – was, they say, “in­spired by travel and fu­elled by giv­ing back”.

And their mo­tives couldn’t have been closer to their hearts. For those un­fa­mil­iar with the Gandys story, Rob and Paul, along with their younger sib­lings Mat­tie and Rosie, were on holiday in Sri Lanka when the 2004 Box­ing Day tsunami hit.

Their par­ents, Kevin and San­dra (“Bo­hemian hip­pies,” says Rob), didn’t sur­vive – leav­ing Rob, Paul, Mat­tie and Rosie, then aged 17, 15, 11 and eight re­spec­tively, plus two older sis­ters not on the trip, or­phaned.
