ALAN COOPER AND ROBERT JOHN LEPPER We were saddened to hear of the passing in 2019 of two of our original founders, Rob Lepper and Alan Cooper. Alan was a champion fund raiser and with his leadership in 2000, the year Convoy was founded, 600,000 Baht was raised with which we were able to buy a bus for The Foundation. It is still in good condition today and is very useful for taking the kids on outings. Rob also was an active fund raiser and he established the Convoy for Kids Charity Golf Day in 2002. The golf day is one of the most popular events of the Thailand golf calendar and has raised over 14 million Baht in profit over the years which has been given to The Foundation to pay for various projects and maintenance costs. Rob was hoping to travel from Australia to Thailand to take part in this year’s Golf Event in May, but sadly his health problem prevented him from coming. They were both two great mates and although they both returned to Australia a few years back, we were able to keep in touch from time to time. Our condolences go to their loved ones. It was our great honour to have known them and they will both be fondly remembered by us.

NEWS ITEMS
We have taken the first steps towards registering as an approved charity. Being registered will help us with issues such as issuing receipts to sponsors and avoiding any tax issues. Thanks go to Khun Pattama for spending time on checking out the regulations and giving guidance on the matter.
OUR NEXT EVENTS Due to the Coronavirus epidemic, both The Kid’s Day Out and The Golf Day had to be postponed in 2020. Thailand has been more fortunate than most countries in terms of Covid 19 cases and mortalities, but we decided to be cautious rather than take unnecessary risks and postpone both events. We have decided on a date for the next golf day which will be held on the 12th of March 2021 at Lakewood Golf Resort provided there are no unforseen issues coming up. Full details will be advised soon. No date or venue have been decided for the The Kids Day yet but it will be towards the end of 2021. Once decided full details will be announced on this site. We hope that the business communities, and friends will step up as they have in past years, and help support both events.
