World Challenge is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Operational Support Technician Mark Kingston.

Mark tragically died on Saturday evening from the injuries he sustained following a serious mountain bike accident earlier in the day.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family – wife Anna, children Courtney and Matt – and friends at this deeply distressing time.

Group Managing Director Matt Eastlake said: “I speak for all of us in saying that Mark was a true and genuine member of the World Challenge team – helpful, humorous and dedicated; we will miss him.”

Mark joined the newly formed Operations Centre Team in January having worked in Youth Development for the last five years within the UAE National Education Programme, teaching leadership and discipline to the Government Secondary Schools.

Previously, he served for 22 years in the British Army, finishing as a Warrant Officer Class 2.
