It has been a busy 3 months since the start of 2018. Our AGM was held on 21st March with a high attendance. Mike Slinn reported it had been another successful year for Winchester Basics Bank. We have fed over 3000 people, we have around 160 agents referring clients from around 70 agencies across Winchester and District. We can always do with more volunteers. After all the business had been dealt with Andy Brown from JobCentrePlus gave an excellent talk on the roll out of Universal Credit which will start in July 2018.
On the same day two of our wonderful volunteers attended the Mayors Award for Voluntary Services ceremony at the Winchester Science Centre. Brian and Suzette have been involved with the charity for many years and we were delighted to nominate them for this award which is very well deserved.
We will be closed on Good Friday 30th March, and reopen on Tuesday 3rd April. We wish you all a happy Easter.
