Lifeline's AGM - 24 October 2019

We are holding our AGM at Wetherspoon's in the family room at 7.30pm start on Thursday 24 October 2019.  Please arrive from 7pm for a prompt start at 7.30pm.

We had a full room last year so it would be great, please, if you could email Rachel to confirm your attendance:

A quick snap-shot of what Lifeline has been able to achieve to date:

  • 17,600 nights of accommodation provided in 6.5 years of housing people;
  • 56 men housed;
  • Average stay 313 nights;
  • Of our leavers, 61.36% have had positive move-ons;
  • 59% of residents have found work;
  • 75% of residents have actively engaged in their support plan

The evening will contain all the legal issues of an AGM but is also intended to be a relaxed social time when volunteers, staff and supporters of Lifeline can spend an evening together. 

We would like to eat a meal together so we hope you can join us. 

  • The full menu can be seen here
  • Or, as it is a Thursday night, it is also the Curry Club which costs £8.15 including a drink.  The menu is here. As you'll see, you can make your curry large by adding onion bhajis or vegetable samosas for another £1.30! 
Please could you let Rachel know your meal and drink requirements before the evening so we can order them quickly when we arrive.  If you can bring the correct change for the meal that would be even better! 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks

God bless

Carl Good
