October 2013 Update

Wow – what a month! We celebrated our 20th Anniversary with funders and key volunteers, past and present at an evening reception in the City Chambers – kindly hosted by the Lord Provost. It was a wonderful evening, with a real feeling of pride coming from everyone who has helped us over the last 20 years.

Unbelievably on the same night Caroline, our Volunteer Support Worker was attending an event in Bucharest to collect our 2013 Active Citizens of Europe Award, as we were one of the winners. The award recognises the invaluable contribution of individual volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations to social cohesion and Active Citizenship in Europe.

At the City Chambers Event we also had the first showing of film we have put together of the Mural Project – showing the work that was completed and what its like one year on.
