A founder member of IPAT,
I served for the first five years of the Trust’s existence
as Secretary and then as Chairman.
Obviously, I care very deeply about the Trust and I am proud
to have seen it grow from the most modest of beginnings.
The fact that we have improved the living standards of
performers all over the world, provided love and encouragement
in the face of disaster and despair and even saved the lives
of some performers, makes me proud to have guided
the charity through its early years and I hope to see it
grow and expand in the future.
