Sad News about one of the founding Trustees

Kim D R Findlay 1960-2023

We are sad to report the death of our dear friend and fellow Trustee, Kim Findlay, on June 22nd 2023 after a three and a half year battle with cancer. He leaves his wife Sarah and two children Holly and Fred.

He remained brave and positive throughout his illness and continued to work tirelessly for Alive & Well securing new potential sponsers and funders.  He was one of the first 5 Trustees who helped raise the initial funds to buy a Dando percussion rig, drilling equipment and landrover which we shipped to Sierra Leone.   The team then paid for themselves to fly out and start the adventure of drilling the first wells villages in the Pujehun region had ever had.  His unyeilding work and dedication to the charity as a founder member is going to be difficult to manage without, but we will endeavour continue the work we do in his memory and hope his legacy of over 100 wells and over 2000 people finally living with clean water will make his family and friends proud of his achievements and the charity he helped start.

Our three remaining trustees will miss his company, his humour and his spirit and will ensure his endeavours are not forgotten.
