GO Representation on the DGH BOM
A key objective of the GO founders was to position an OGB, representing the views of GO and its members, on the DGH Board of Management (BOM). GO was therefore delighted to nominate Pauline Sapphire-Singh (nee Brooks) following an invitation from the new BOM President, in October. GO is proud of its achievement and congratulates Pauline on her historic appointment.

Following a GO Committee mandate, GO welcomed two new members to its management team in October. OGBs Babita Chakravarty, from New Delhi, India and Sankasubha Roy, Dubai UAE were unanimously elected to the Committee and will join a committed and dedicated global team that currently numbers 14 members.

Archie Tollin - RIP.
It is with deep sadness we learn of the passing of Archie Tollin, aged 92. We extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends. of Archie.
OGB Vanda Campbell, a close friend of the family who invited Archie and his daughter Christine to join the 670 miles, 6 day Bike Bengal 2010 cycle ride, writes: “In February 2010, Archie aged 82, cycled from Kolkata to Kalimpong to raise funds for child sponsorship at the Homes. His daughter Christine cycled with him and their family and wide network gave generously. A friend said to Archie – “when I grow up, I want to be like you”! Archie’s response, with typical humility was, “man, have you no ambition”! Archie gave generously to all the fundraising events for DGH. Thanks Archie!”
We would also like to thank Vanda for her generous £100 donation to GO in memory of Archie Tollin.
