Glenn Halliday, Chairman of The Trustees of The Hunger Project UK, said the organisation was deeply grateful for Tim’s contributions
“Tim’s tireless efforts over the past few years significantly increased The Hunger Project UK’s profile and public awareness of the important work that THP does. His accomplishment is probably best illustrated and celebrated by highlighting his bold vision for raising awareness of the issues of hunger and poverty and the work of The Hunger Project.
His creation of World Hunger Day, in partnership with the legendary singer Dionne Warwick has helped put our charity on the map.
The spectacular series of live events that were created at the Royal Albert Hall, Apollo Victoria and Pizza Express Jazz Club attracted over 12,000 people, and generated enormous support and coverage from the media reaching many millions more across the UK and around the world.”
Tim Holder said
”Deciding to relinquish my role as Country Director of The Hunger Project UK has been one of the most difficult decisions I have made. Over the past few years we have all pulled together to achieve many incredible results. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their huge on-going support and to encourage many more to step up and get involved.”
“On behalf of the trustees and myself I would like to express the heartfelt thanks for the spirit and innovation that Tim brought to all he did,” said Glenn. Tim leaves THP UK in a much stronger position to continue its ambitious plans for growth, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours”
