Our Annual Report Back evening on Friday 10th November was a great success. HEALTH & HOPE featured video reports, interviews with volunteers and live music. It was also the evening when it was announced that John Earwicker would be standing down as Executive Director at the end of the year. His Assistant Director, Steve Travis, will take the reins for the coming year.
The silent auction was a great success and raised over £1,400. Ken Wood became a supporter of MAI after his daughter Laura and wife Helen joined the volunteer teams to EMBO. He is also the Director of Operational Risk Management for the Ardagh Group which manufactures glass and metal containers. Many of Ardagh’s products have won outstanding awards. Ardagh as well as the Wood family sponsored a number of auction and raffle lots that created an unexpected but welcome income stream on a night that was enjoyed by all. Thank you Ardagh and the Woods family!
