UK Development Ambassadors – Key to Fundraising & Development

The Smiles Foundation would not exist without our TEAM of volunteers throughout the UK & USA.
People who give of their time, talents and resources to enable the maximum to be achieved from a TEAM effort. People who share a similar passion, coming together with all sorts of gifts and abilities for the good of others.

Luke Wathen
UK Development Ambassador

Luke at RapaAfter a year in Romania with Smiles on a Career Break (March 2016 – March 2017), Luke felt God call him into a full-time ministry sharing the work of Smiles through Presentations across England, Wales and Scotland – wherever he is invited to go!

Luke continues to serve in Romania during Mission Trips, as Mission Centre Manager, so as to connect with visitors and help to develop and promote the work of Smiles. He has also been very involved with several Fund-Raisiung efforts, rasing thousands of pounds through a Cycle Challenge, Countdown Competitions and Cookery Demonstrations. Five months of the year he will be touring the United Kingdom presenting Smiles to Churches, Schools, Colleges and Community Groups.

Adrian Pogue
Development Ambassador - Northern Ireland

Adrian PogueFollowing the tragic loss in 2018 of Barbara Morrison our former DA for Northern Ireland, we are thankful that Adrian Pogue has accepted the challenge of stepping into the official role. Adrian is no stranger to the ministry of Smiles having been a supporter and leader of many mission teams for more than 12 years. Adrian first visited Romania after significant support was raised for the Gepiu Community project. He attended the Official Opening of the Centre in 2006.

Adrian now visits Romania every year, keeping track of developments in all the established projects, and seeing for himself the new projects being established which is a constant feature of the Smiles Foundation in Romania. This knowledge enables him to effectively support and encourage the many like-minded people from Northern Ireland who love and support the wonderful work of Smiles.
