Dave’s on the Team

For some, Dave’s no stranger. For me, he was. I met him at the Central Hall, Westminster, London, last year on a period of home leave. We’d shared identifying features over the phone……..I think he said he’d be wearing brown. I was equally helpful ‘I’ll be carrying a shoulder bag…blue!’ The meeting was destined to happen as it was a quiet day for the Central Hall. We talked: Botswana, retirement, grandchildren…and then to the grown up stuff! How could we make his job of collecting funds, for FM, in UK more meaningful, and how could he help us to communicate well with UK supporters? So, Dave Young’s part of the FM Team: secretary of FM UK. He’s not afraid to call a spade a spade. It’s good to know he’s there, that he’s prepared to read document drafts, that he banks the money, that he informs me of donations, that he prays for the work…. and that he paid for my lunch that day!
