Who Are we ?

LVCF (Laotian Village Community Fund)


...is is a UK-registered charity run by 3 trustees and is helped on occasions by various friends and supporters.


The Trustees are;

  • Dermot Macward - Chairman
  • Steve Palframan - Secretary and Treasurer
  • Campbell Skinner - General Projects


For contact details see 'Contact Us'


Dermot and Steve are founder members of the charity and Campbell joined in 2010 after being instrumental in the fundraising for our Hussainabad flood relief appeal in Pakistan. The inspiration for the charity came from Dermot, whose company Redspokes Adventure Tours takes cycle tours to the areas where our projects originate.


Campbell and Steve have both been on past Redspokes tours with Dermot, as has Conor MacDonnel who was a trustee until 2009 and set up the legal and administrative side of the charity.


We are always on the lookout for help with the charity and would welcome offers of assistance either for a specific project or to join as a Trustee.
