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.

CHARITY GOLF DAY 2021
OUR NEXT EVENTS Due to the Coronavirus epidemic, both The Kid’s Day Out and The Golf Day in 2020 had to be postponed. 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. Our golf day is now scheduled for the 7th of May 2021 and will take place at The Royal Lakeside Course. See more details here. We hope to be able to confirm a date for a Kids day out later in the year. We hope that the business communities, and friends will step up as they have in past years, and help support both events.
