Margaret Green very kindly hosted a party at Calamansac in Port Navas on Sunday 6th August to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the Trust. John Green, Margaret's late husband, started HRCST at Calamansac in 1997 with a few boats and a lot of determination and enthusiasm. Today the Trust operates over 80 boats and teaches more than 600 children each year.
Enormous thanks to our retiring co-Chairman
Christopher Fawell’s contribution to HRCST cannot be overstated. He joined me some 14 years ago, at a most vulnerable time when we were taking over the reins from our founder, John Green, and together we spent several years just assimilating the complex and extraordinary strategic thinking behind John’s vision. That we were able to achieve this and then to build upon it a larger organisation growing every year is in huge part due to Christopher’s tact and diplomacy, combined with a really practical skill for fundraising.
Whilst we will miss him greatly as co-chairman, Christopher has kindly agreed to remain a trustee and adviser to our management committee. We acknowledge and thank him for his magnificent contribution and are delighted that we will still benefit from his experience.
