The Saint George Charity Fund was created by being inspired by three events:
I. The Trustees and Directors moving from Great Britain to Saint George, Utah.
II. The tremendous welcome and friendliness of the local community.
III. A movie, starring Kevin Spacey called, “Pay It Forward”, which is now it’s our motto.
There are 3 Trustees, each one a director with specific responsibilities.

Nigel is the person who makes the office space untidy to ensure that Michael has enough work to do! He is the driving force behind finding worthwhile projects to help build our community. He also gets to pull strings because he is the father.
