In Memory of David Enthoven
David served as a trustee from 2006-2016. His vision, guidance, laughter and love are deeply missed. His support for Voice for Nature was unwavering from our inception till he sadly passed away on August, 11th 2016. David had a unique ability to not only offer support to those who needed his help, but he was always able to spot those who didn’t even know they needed help and he would always gently and humbly offer his wisdom and experience with no expectations. He summed up unlocking human potential and made us all better and wiser people for that. Thank you David for leaving a special mark on sculpting and supporting our foundation and our trustees.
