September 11th 2019 saw the Chairman Simon Lovell, Hon Treasurer Brian Winterbourne and President Andrew Tompsett hand over the contribution to one of our chosen charities, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, the only hospice of its kind due to open next month fully in Barnet, North London. Priya and her team dedicated a good few hours giving us the complete tour of this outstanding facility.
It is very rare in the history of the 39 Club that we revisit and support a single worthy cause twice in the same decade. Chairman Andrew Tompsett chose to support this cause during 2016, as one of his work colleagues lost their 8 year old son Zac which massively hit home to all concerned. Andrew commented “to revisit this amazing project supporting the 1,200 families currently affected by the blight of terminal illness in children was a moving sight to behold. The progress made at Noah’s Ark was overwhelming and to witness the effort put in to create and build this high quality and most incredible calm sympathetic building within the countryside was second to none”. What a terrific good cause and we thank every single member and friend of the 39 Club who have made this donation possible. We are eternally grateful.
