Nella Wilkinson

It is with great sadness that our oldest and longest supporter of the charity (Nella) sadly passed away a couple of months ago. She was a great asset and friend to the charity and her input and insights will be sorely missed.

Mandy Davis

We were pleased to welcome Mandy onto our board in April 2019.

A semi-retired History teacher with 30+ years experience, Mandy brings skills in development planning; IT: and communication.

Previously as a deputy principal, she has been well used to managing people: and her teaching background means she is well placed to advise on our overseas school projects. As an active member (and past president) of the Seaford Martello Rotary Club, a long-term support of CTAS, she has followed our journey over the past 15 years: and is familiar with our work and projects.

Michele Spencer, Founder

Michele Spencer is a qualified accountant, tax adviser, trainer and HR specialist.

She has run her own businesses since 1979, providing a range of services to small & medium size businesses, and individuals. From the 1990’s up until 2014, having qualified as an Investor in People adviser and assessor, she worked with a number of large companies and public sector organisations, offering HR and related organisational services.

More recently she has ceased this activity to enable her to spend more time managing her two limited companies, and carrying out her work for CTAS, which she founded in 2004. She visits Nepal three or four times a year, to set up and supervise our projects; working closely with our CTAS Nepal committee and in particular our CTAS Nepal Administrator and Treasurer. She speaks Nepali and has good working relationships with the Chairpersons of various organisations in Nepal, and in particular with the Municipality and other public sector bodies in the Pokhara Valley.

As Chairperson of CTAS, her mix of financial and people skills helps bring a balanced and rounded approach to our activities; her in-depth knowledge of the Nepali people and their culture enables us to respond appropriately to the requests for funding that we receive.
