Peter Rand MBE

Trustee,Vice Chairman and Non Executive Trustee 

Peter Rand MBE has been involved as FHL Trustee, Vice Chairman and Non Executive Trustee since autumn 2009, when the charity was launched. In the last four years, Peter has been the principle link with FHL's Committee in the Holy Land visiting four or five times a year as well as supporting the growth of FHL in the UK. 

Peter says, “I will always be grateful to our founder, Michael Whelan, for introducing me to Friends of the Holy Land. My first pilgrimage in March 2010 made an impact on me that I could never have anticipated. Every time I visit I witness changes to the lives of many Christians because of the generosity of time, money and resources of so many of our supporters in this country. To have seen the continued growth of our impact over there (22% more grants this year than last) has been humbling.”
