We are delighted to announce that two people are joining the charity to 
assist with the growing demand. Ian Langlois and Cathy Bateman have agreed 
to join the team which is fundraising to build an orphanage at a Christian 
soccer academy in the Cape Flats in South Africa.

Founder, Nigel Pascoe, says, 'Ian Langlois has been an avid supporter of 
Goal50 since it all kicked off. His creativity and vision is highly valued 
and I am delighted that he has joined us in an official capacity. He will 
play an important role as the charity moves forward.'

Also joining Goal50 is Cathy Bateman. Nigel adds, 'Cathy's administration 
skills will be invaluable as the charity's scope of work increases month by 
month. I am very grateful that she has agreed to team up and her interest, 
energy and enthusiasm will be be very much appreciated.'

Ian visited Cape Town with Nigel last month where they spent time at the 
soccer academy and visited both the Feeding Programmes which Goal50 set up 
last year. Currently, the charity is providing over 2,000 meals every month. 
A third feeding scheme is in the process of being launched to assist a drug 
rehabilitation clinic. The clinic is funded on a voluntary basis. Over the 
years, some of he boys at the soccer academy have been referred to the 
clinic where the majority of the patients are heroin addicts.
