Andy Mason has been appointed as our new Drop-in Manager and Volunteer Co-ordinator, with effect from 21 September 2020. Andy recently returned to Poole after he trained to be a vicar and worked in parishes in Salisbury and Bristol. He is currently taking a bit of a break while working part-time with us and doing some work in schools with the PACE Trust. Andy says: “I am really excited about joining the team at Routes to Roots. I am passionate about Christians not just ‘talking the talk’ but also ‘walking the walk’ too – my favourite passage in the Bible is Matthew 25 when Jesus says what we did/didn’t do for the hungry/thirsty/cold/vulnerable we did/didn’t do it him, which I find both a challenge and an encouragement!
Because of the coronavirus situation we have not been able to schedule an AGM for 2019-20 and we will not be able to do so until it becomes safe for us to hold a public meeting. We are, therefore, making available the documents that would have been presented at the meeting and ask that you contact the office with any questions or comments that you may have. For the foreseeable future, Pat Southgate remains chair of R2R and the Board of Trustees remains unchanged with the exception of a new volunteer who has now taken on the role of Honorary Secretary.
