Laurence Biggs, an ordained Anglican minister, has been involved in world mission for nearly 30 years. He was founder of Romania Care which has raised over £1million (cash and gifts in kind) to provide practical help and financial support for charitable, educational and medical projects in Romania/Moldova as well as sending over 200 people there on short term mission teams. In more recent years he has been involved with mission work in Sierra Leone, Kenya and Zambia. Having taken early retirement, he is really excited about the possibility of dedicating more time to world mission through his work as Mission Director of Throw A Starfish.
Alison Biggs is married to Laurence; they have 5 children and a granddaughter. She has worked with Laurence in Eastern Europe, visiting Romania and Moldova on a number of occasions. She co-led a Soapbox Expeditions team to work in the Kibera slum of Nairobi in 2013. In 2014 and 2018, she returned to Africa with Laurence to identify new partners and build meaningful relationships with them. She has a heart for the poor, especially children, and looks forward to new opportunities with Throw A Starfish.
