2014 Annual General Meeting

The Food Chain AGM 2014 took place in the Acorn House kitchen on 15 October.

19 members and one guest attended and all approved the 2013/14 accounts.

We are pleased to announce that three new Trustees will join the Board.

Matthew Wills is an HIV Social Care Coordinator at the Homerton Hospital, and has been referring service users to The Food Chain from the hospital since 2010. He previously worked in the HIV voluntary sector for almost 10 years as a development and advice worker.

Tilly Rubens is a qualified lawyer who specialises in social housing and homelessness law. She previously worked in the voluntary sector for four years before starting legal training, and has experience of dealing with financial, staffing and governance issues.

Reetu Sood has more than 10 years' experience in the voluntary sector, with a professional background in organisational development. She brings a strong understanding of finance and fundraising having worked at the Social Enterprise Investment.

People at the meeting also heard about the achievements of the charity in the past year and discussed the changing needs of our service users and how we can best respond to them. The content of the presentation is available to view below and if anyone would like to know more about the information shown there please contact Siobhán and she will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Many thanks to our retiring Trustees, Mikey Drury, Jo Hancock and Peter Roscrow, for their outstanding contributions and support during their time on the Board.
