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.
