David Farquharson, Chairman.
David lives in West London with his wife, Jo and three children. David and his wife first visited Okonjima in November 2010 and were massively impressed by the great work being carried out by the AfriCat Foundation and equally by the warmth of the African hospitality. His wife then volunteered his services! As a corporate lawyer with a media and entertainment firm, David has assisted with the running of AfriCat UK and various work with the Foundation's legal requirements and issues. Outside of law and AfriCat, David enjoys spending time with his family, undertaking a variety of sporting pursuits, travelling, theatre, and good food and wine.
Mark Reinecke, Trustee of AfriCat UK.
A lawyer by training, Mark is also a part-owner for the past 14 years of Farm Ombujongwe, which has been brought into the Okonjima Conservancy and now serves as an integral part of AfriCat's release programmes.
Carey Widdows, AfriCat UK MAIN CONTACT
Having first visited Okonjima and AfriCat in 1998 I was impressed with the conservation and education work being tackled by the team. Having made regular visits since, I have been able to keep up with developments. After retiring from work at a University and in HR I was keen to support AfriCat in the UK to continue its mission of enabling the big cats to run wild in what for me is one of the most stunning parts of the world.
James Tomlinson, Trustee of AfriCat UK.
James is Sales Director at West Berkshire Brewery and a Director of The Royal County of Berkshire Brewery. He lives in a village near Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, with his wife and 2 children, Lucy and Freddie. In 2007 James and his wife visited AfriCat with Moulsford Prep School and then again in 2009. Since then he has always talked about the great work that AfriCat does and his desire to be more involved with such a charity. This dream came true during the summer of 2014 when James was invited to be a Trustee of AfriCat UK.
