On Thursday 28th June we held an Awards Evening at Birtley Golf Club to celebrate our Trustees and Volunteers. They all recently completed training delivered by NCVS in Safeguarding, Roles and Responsibilities and Equality and Diversity.  Liz Twist MP very kindly came along on the night to present the certificates and gave her appreciation of the wonderful work of all volunteers.

We were also joined by others who had helped us over the past 12 months. These included The Scribblers and cast of A Geordie Nativity.

 A thoroughly enjoyable night was had by all!
