"I feel as a human helping and supporting each other is a gift we all can give however rich or poor and for me the Venture Force foundation creates this opportunity. As trustees we endeavour to help society in empowering itself and individuals in creating a better place to exist, which is a simple but great achievement."
GRAHAM GIBB MBE
"As a church leader one of my priorities in life is to bring help to those in need, particularly in my local community. Working with ‘Venture Force Foundation’ is providing me with a tremendous opportunity to extend that help out into the global community. The projects chosen by the Foundation always bring practical help to communities, with all funds going direct to the work."
Chaple Lay Minister
"Through working in management in both the public and voluntary sector I know how much people working together can bring about changes for the better. I had no hesitation in accepting the invitation to be one of the Trustees of Venture Force Foundation as I believe in the positive changes it will make to so many individual lives and I look forward to contributing my experience and beliefs to support its aims and activities."
"Our school motto is ‘Do the right thing’ and I believe that the Venture Force foundation does exactly that. I am delighted to have been asked to become a trustee where I can use my experiences in teaching, learning and management. I am determined and passionate about the Foundation making a real and sustainable difference to the lives of people and communities around the globe."
"In 20 years in the classroom as a secondary school teacher, the inconvenient truth I have had to acknowledge over again is that there is a simple correlation between a person’s achievements in education, life and the level of privilege into which they were born. I believe the foundation can make a very real impact in helping the communities achieve the standards of living everyone takes for granted. In this way we give the young people the key to unlock their potential."
Chris Holmes (RIP)
"Sadly Chris passed away in Dec 2012 having fought cancer for many years. Chris was an inspiration to all, a wonderfully caring person and a great friend. Although Chis is no longer with us we’d like to keep him as an ‘In-augural member’ and remember that his spirit remains with us in all we do."
