Celebrating our 30 years at our AGM

 In Events, Media, News and events

Our AGM provided a welcome opportunity for our 30th birthday celebrations, bringing together more than 45 past and present staff, trustees, volunteers, and supporters including Ann Titman who founded the Mums’ and Young Children’s project 30 years ago 

That founding project continues to offer speciality group counselling and play therapy to young families. Since 1993, the services have expanded, now including a befriending programme for 5- to 13yearolds and a service supporting dads in prison in maintaining positive relationships with their children. 

Chris Bale, Chair of Trustees said, “It felt very important to come together at our AGM to acknowledge and thank everyone that has played a part in making the charity what it is today, and to highlight the continuing need of many families in our home town”.  

With demand for these services remaining as high as ever, the charity has recognised that a fundraising boost is essential so we have set our sights on raising £30,000 in our 30th year, assisted by match-funding which means that every pound raised will be matched.   

Operations Director Jo Smith said “We are proud of the work we are already doing in our community, but sadly the cost-of-living crisis has left even more families at breaking pointThat’s why it’s vital that we achieve our goal of raising 30k for 30 years. Families in the Winchester district need us, and they need us now.”  

We are getting close to our target but need more help. You can support us by donating to our birthday campaign. To do this and find out other ways to get involved, go to www.fotfwinchester.org/support-us/donate/
