AGM – SUCCESS!

We held a wonderful first AGM with a packed out room at Parbold Village Hall where we shared all that the charity had been up to this year.  It was great to share the progress made and appeal for more support to help those most in need.

AGM – Wednesday 31st January 2018

We’re holding our first AGM on Wednesday 31st January 2018 at 7.30pm in Parbold Village Hall.  Do come and join us to find out about the work we have been doing and how you can get involved.  Cheese and wine will follow the very short business part of the AGM.

 

Harvest

On Sunday 1st October, Douglas Valley Outreach celebrated the work of the last year and thanked volunteers and contributors for their service and donations.

We displayed images of the work that we had been doing and the story behind the plight of some of the Asylym Seekers we have been supporting.

It was a great event which allowed the local community to learn more about our work.
