David FrancesFarewell and a HUGE thank you to David Francis (known also as Abhilasa) our outgoing Finance Manager. David has been a student of the programme since 1992 and joined the centre workforce just 18 months ago as the organisation went through much change and upheaval.

He has by force of will, gentle compassion and excellent coaching brought our finances into good order, enabling the UK More To Life organisation to know exactly where we are financially and also to make plans about what we need to do to resolve issues and concerns. David has been incredibly patient with us all, marshalling us through turbulent times on just 14 hours a week. We know realistically that he has given so much more, not in just time but in commitment and loving boldness to say what needed to be said.

David will be missed. His presence at the More To Life Centre has been a constant over the past year as we saw the departure of our Centre Manager Kharma-Sel (September 2014) and the start of the Training and Project Co-ordinator, Judi (December 2014). We are glad to say that David will continue to support our Kairos, charitable arm in a voluntary capacity, bringing his acute financial skills forward to ensure that our donor contributions are well managed and that we meet our charitable aims and purposes.

Go well David…
