Board of Advisors
In addition to the Board of Trustees, which comprises the legal custodians of the Trust, it has been decided to form an informal Board of Advisors. Members of the latter group would be drawn from among individuals who knew and/or worked with Ray Wijewardene. They are expected to provide sector specific advice and guidance to the Trust on an occasional basis, and also serve as Goodwill Ambassadors promoting the charity.
