Goal50 expands support team
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.
