Andrew Scadding

Chief executive, Thai Children's Trust

Andrew Scadding has been in and around fundraising since 1967, as a fundraiser, trustee and database programmer. Currently incarnated as chief executive of Thai Children's Trust (formerly Pattaya Orphanage Trust) , ‘probably the best job in the world’, which he has held since 1999 ‘thanks to a very tolerant board of trustees’, he also chairs the Trustees of the Prisoners of Conscience Appeal Fund. He is married ‘for more years than I care to admit’, a relieved parent, happy grandparent, devoted dog walker and cheery iconoclast.
