ISA Charity logo


I have been very fortunate in my life and in 1984 I was inspired by my wife to give something back to the community. Funded by my company, ISA, I founded a small charity to offer people the chance to embark on an experience that could change their perspective on life.

Travelling, my own passion became the first focus of the charity, as I understood its ability to expand people’s horizons, both physically and emotionally

On the plane over to Beijing nerves really started to kick in and the enormity of the challenge that I had set myself really began to sink in. It was the first time that I had been away from home in my nineteen years of existence. The chaos of Beijing, which I was to grow to love, hit me immediately at the scrum for taxis quickly followed by the complete mess that was the roads in Beijing. …looking back on my time in Beijing I have nothing but fond memories. From the city itself, the food and the amazing people that I met and have formed potentially lasting friendships with to the excellent opportunity to learn Mandarin. I can honestly say that I can't wait to go back, and will endeavour to do so as soon, as is possible.
