Tim Foster MBE – Our New Ambassador
May 2015

“The Nasio Trust are making a really positive and crucially important impact in a very remote corner of the world. It is hard to imagine the position that these orphans would be in without the support of the charity. They are highly ambitious and believe in a sustainable model, which I really admire.” -Tim Foster.

We’re delighted to announce the addition of Olympic Gold Medallist Tim Foster to the Nasio Team in the role of Charity Ambassador!

Tim Foster is one of the finest rowers Britain has produced, having picked up an impressive two gold medals at the World Championships (97&98) as well as an Olympic Bronze in Atlanta (96) followed by a memorable Gold at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. In the latter of these achievements, Tim rowed in a Coxless four alongside Steve Redgrave, Matthew Pincent and James Cracknell. Tim stood out as being one of the most determined athletes to pick up a Gold at Sydney, overcoming serious injuries on his journey to the Olympics.

As a charity, we pride ourselves on setting ambitious goals and achieving them, and it’s hard to think of one person who personifies this more than Tim.
