Our Team

Hope for a Child is a charity based in Guernsey, currently working in Malawi. Our team is made up of talented and committed staff and volunteers.

Nik Herring

Marketing Manager

Nik has been developing the charity’s brand for several years and directs all marketing and communications, both on and offline. This includes our marketing campaigns, websites, social media and promotional activities.

Nik studied Art and Design in Guernsey and Bristol, going on to establish his own business Cardboard Orchestra. He loves old motorcycles, camping and pulling a fine flat white. He is married to Sally with son Zeph.

Tricia Pill


Tricia has lived in sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian sub-continent with her family and been involved in the communities and with projects in those localities. Sometimes this has been with individuals and at other times with organisations working to enable women and girls in particular to lead lives of dignity and self-responsibility. Tricia brings to Hope for a Child a passion for seeing communities thrive through being given appropriate support to become self-sufficient.

Tricia is an Occupational Therapist and, with Bryan, recently completed an MA in Kingdom Theology. They have 3 grown up children, brought up mostly overseas. Tricia loves reading, walking, enjoying these beautiful islands and relaxing with friends and family!

Richard Pollard


Richard grew up in Africa and spent many years working there, running his own businesses and being involved in helping administer an orphanage for 3 years. His work as a pilot flying round East and Central Africa led to him understanding some of the challenges that Aid Organisations face when operating in countries with often poor communication links and governance. He loves being involved with Hope for a Child.
