Dominic Biggs’s career in journalism and subsequently financial and property investment and portfolio management took him from the UK to Hong Kong, New York and Australia. Settling in Sydney he discovered Lengo collecting football boots at his sons’ futsal tournament and was instantly inspired to volunteer. Lengo’s core
values – have heart, team first, play fair, work hard, value growth, be you – resonated perfectly,
and the work it was selflessly, quietly doing in Arusha was inspirational. The charity combined for him two life changing and life enhancing themes – football and Africa – and a third in philanthropy offering a wonderful and timely opportunity to give back.
Dominic has been a successful journalist, sub-editor and editor in UK provincial newspapers and daily newspapers in London and Hong Kong. He holds vocational qualifications in journalism and a degree in Sports Administration and Coaching from the University of Canberra, Australia. A successful junior footballer in the UK at Football League level and at semi-professional and
amateur level in senior football in the UK and Hong Kong, he values greatly the many sporting and life gifts and lessons of participation in the great sport of football as player, team-, club- and community member, coach and volunteer; reporter, spectator and fan.
Dominic has travelled independently overland throughout Africa, north to south and east to west through almost 20 countries, including a spell in Tanzania where he stayed for a while in Arusha, climbed Mt Kilimanjaro to Uhuru Peak, and went on safari in the Serengeti and to the Ngorongoro Crater. The humility and generosity encountered throughout Africa, in the most remote locations and trying circumstances, was life changing and forged a wish to one day return to reciprocate in
some way if ever that became possible.
He is enjoying immensely being part of Lengo and looking forward greatly to continuing to try to make a difference by giving something back in return for all his great good fortune, and is incredibly excited by what he believes is the almost limitless potential of Lengo to bring about positive change.
