New Trustee joins children’s charity Christel House Europe

Christel House International (CHI) recently welcomed a new Trustee to its Board of Christel House Europe.

The founder of the children’s charity supported by many leading timeshare companies, Christel DeHaan, has invited long-time supporter Declan Kenny to the European division of the charity she founded back in 1998.

Christel House’s annual golf fundraiser is a highlight of the timeshare calendar and the European shared ownership industry overall has been a staunch supporter of the charity for many years now.

The charity cares for 4,000 impoverished children across the world, providing them with education, meals, healthcare, character and life skills development, as well as career counseling.

Kenny, an executive chairman of First Names Group, brings a wealth of experience to the role and is also managing director of First National Trustee Company.

Christel DeHaan said of the appointment: “We are so pleased that Declan has accepted our invitation to join the board of Christel House Europe.

“The European timeshare community has given loyal support to Christel House and with Declan’s leadership, CH Europe can continue to build on the momentum created under Ron Haylock.”

Kenny added: “I consider it a privilege to be asked to become a Trustee and look forward to being involved in ensuring the continuing success of the European division of Christel House.”
