The ECHO AGM 2018 will be held on Thursday 20th September at 7.00pm at the Leominster Sports and Social Club. Further details in the September newsletter. Put the date in your diaries. It will be our best party ever!
This is a very special event in the ECHO year. The one night when all the projects come together to celebrate our work. It would be impossible to share all that happens so the AGM squeezes in as many highlights as we can. ECHO now has 28 projects. Not to mention summer activities and all the wonderful additional groups that have established themselves with ECHO support.
It is quite unlike any other AGM, being a user-led organisation we hand the night over to them. They decide the programme for the evening. There are always surprises! All the official business is conducted – with an ECHO twist of course. No one will forget About Face’s presentation of the financial report as a game show called ‘Money – Balls!’.
The annual report
The annual report is available from the ECHO office or you can read it online. Just click HERE . In this we share project news and get to briefly thank the many people that make ECHO such a successful organisation. We now have 90 volunteers and the list of donors grows each year.
As a local charity we value the links we are able to make in the community. Recent work with Leominster Tennis Club to create accessible sessions for all is a shining example of what can be achieved.
The range of projects is diverse and a reflection of the way ECHO responds to the needs and requests of the people it supports. We are very proud of the quality of the services we provide and part of the AGM includes a quality and satisfaction survey. The overwhelmingly positive feedback indicates our members agree we are doing a good job too!
No two years are ever the same but one thing is guaranteed, this is not a night you would want to miss.
