Peggy & Chris Gasson - Trustee
My name is Peggy and I first met Dorothy when I joined the Victory Church about 11 years ago. She really impressed me with her passion for the children of Orchid and I was glad to get involved with a fund raising walk with my husband Chris. I continued to support Orchid where possible over the years and when Dorothy asked me to become a Trustee recently, I was pleased to accept, knowing what a worthwhile organisation I would be joining.
I'm Chris, married to Peggy. Dorothy asked me to become a Treasurer as there was a vacancy coming up. I was already a supporter and felt this was something I could help her with, as I now have more time, having retired.
Tracey Lloyd - Trustee
I became involved with Orchid Ministries right at the beginning, when I helped Dorothy with some of the paperwork during the initial setting up the charity. I have since been involved in raising funds, including the amazing experience of participating in a sponsored walk through Death Valley in USA. I was honoured a few years ago to be asked by Dorothy to become a Trustee of such a worthwhile charity
Howard Cottrell - Trustee
Howard Cottrell is an experienced teacher and manager of a Personalised Learning Centre. He has been married to Kate for 20 plus years and they have 3 children. He has always been a good support to this ministry and takes part in the fundraising and as an ideas person.
