Retirement and the future of the Raven Trust

As many of you will know, John and Sue Challis, the founders of The Raven Trust, have been planning their retirement from the trust for a while now. The completion of Shonga Bridge saw the winding up of John’s last major project and now there are just a few tasks to complete before retirement finally takes effect during 2017.

After much prayer, thought, deliberation and discussion, the trustees have decided that, unless a viable alternative becomes apparent in the next few months, the work of The Raven Trust will close this year. We thank everyone for all their support over the years.

We expect that the March container will be the last to be sent from Dundee, and space is limited. Please contact John Challis or David Randall if you are planning to send boxes out to Malawi in this container. There are alternative (but more expensive) ways of sending items to Malawi. We will provide details of these on this website in due course.
