 In News and events

Our AGM, on 4th November, marked the retirement of Viv Wheeler as Chair of Trustees, after eight years of dedicated service. We are thrilled that Viv will remain a trustee of Friends of the Family.

Thanking Viv for her commitment, trustee Chrissie Morse said: “Viv has given so much time to Friends of the Family and it shows as we are in a great position today. She has been an inspirational Chair to us all. She leaves Friends of the Family in the very capable hands of our newly-elected Chair, Karen Hazlitt.”

The AGM was attended by the Mayor of Winchester, Councillor Eleanor Bell, past and present volunteers, staff, trustees and members. The event coincided with National Befriending Week and we took the opportunity to hi-light the work of our volunteer befrienders who were presented with certificates in recognition of their work.

Speaking at the event, Mayor of Winchester, Cllr Eleanor Bell said: “Thank you on behalf of the City of Winchester and the district. You are doing fantastic work which is so worthwhile.”
