New FOAH Board Announcement

Last week was the FOAH AGM where the FOAH board handed over the reins and welcomed an enthusiastic new team.

All present enjoyed hearing about the impressive achievements over the last two years and financial statement to date. Most of the events focused on fund raising while having family fun - highlights included the Summer Fair, Ladies Pamper night and a Dinner & Dance. There were also events that solely focused on the children and their enrichment, such as an Easter bake and the recent movie nights.

Including the Bags of Help win, an immense £37,890 has been raised to date and the profit put towards various projects to benefit the school and children. These have included the purchase of a minibus, Christmas gifts for each child at Primary and Secondary, electric sharpeners, and the Sensory Garden and Pond.

The Chair also went over one or two plans that are currently in progress and will be seen through to completion by the outgoing committee members. These include our annual Christmas gifting and of course the Sensory Garden, where a buzz of activity will take place in January - watch this space!!

A full set of AGM minutes and financial statement is available here.

I am delighted to announce the new members of the FOAH Board:

They will no doubt be in touch in the new year. For now I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a happy and restful break. It has been a pleasure serving you as your FOAH Chair 2015-2017 with my fantastic team. Thank you to all of you, and specially my Vice Chair, Hemang whose dedication has been second to none.

Best wishes,
Yogi and the Friends of Avanti House team
