"It's been hard work and organising events takes time, patience and all of the team pulling together. But we've had the support of some truly wonderful people and organisations over the past year who have provided the venues, catering and entertainment for the types of events we have managed to put on. In particular the support of the local shops has been vital and this, alongside, support from local businesses providing prizes and sponsorship is invaluable.
I meet with the team on a monthly basis and these informal meetings are really important in trying to gel everything together, make plans and get things sorted. Not everything works out as we want it straight away but we're a resilient bunch and I'm so pleased that in the past year we've been able to do so much for the charity.
