Today the Chairmen and Secretaries of our Regional Committees were welcomed to Ascot for a General Meeting and get together.
It was good to hear from you all about how you are still trying to raise funds for our Benificiaries. As I said at the meeting we must not get disheartened as even a small amount of money raised can mean a real difference to some one's life. £200 can buy a Bed or a Fridge. £500 is the average one off award we make to someone in crisis.
I find these meetings give us all a chance to hear from other regions and realise that we are not alone in our struggle to raise money today. Sometimes it is good to hear other ways to fundraise and gives us fresh ideas.
Once again thanks to you all for making the effort to travel to HQ.
