Many of you will know, or know of Reg Witchard, Chair of the UK Trust. During 2006 Reg was asked to assist Project Gateway with the setting up of a UK based Charity Trust. Reg returned to the UK and set to work. He recruited a number of volunteers as Trustees, and with himself as the Chair, established what has become a very successful fundraising entity.
The Executive Board and the CEO of Project Gateway, Pastor Jabulani Mnculwane, are most grateful for the contribution that Reg has made in assisting the UK.
Not only did he Chair the Trust for the past 11 years and spend many hours fundraising for the Trust, he also spent much time speaking at various churches in the UK, ladies' groups who support us and anyone who was interested in finding out what Project Gateway does on a day to day basis. He also travelled with his wife Joan to South Africa at his own expense on many many occasions. Together they host a representative from Project Gateway on an annual basis, and as well as providing accommodation and meals, Reg allocates time to driving the representative to the many and various meetings scheduled. Joan’s contribution has been invaluable in hosting the representative in a 5* manner!
For this, we at Project Gateway will always be incredibly grateful and pray that the blessing they have given us will be returned to them 100 fold.
As he approaches his 80th birthday, Reg has decided to step down from Chairing the UK trust, although he will remain a Trustee.
The amount raised to date since the Trust was formed is £335,384 which equates to R4,980,283. An amazing contribution!
On behalf of the Executive Board of Project Gateway we would like to thank Reg and Joan Witchard for the amazing contribution that they have given to Project Gateway.
