UK Chagos Support Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2018
Thanks to everyone who attended the UK Chagos Support Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday 22 September 2018. As ever it was a really valuable opportunity for us to plan, review our work and catch up with Chagossian community members and a variety of supporters.
Our Chair Tom Guha praised the continued determination and courage of the community, as well as the dedication of our many committed volunteers. Tom's statement can be read in full here.
Our Treasurer Peri also delivered her report on the Association's finances over the past year. Happily she was able to report both a record amount given directly to Chagossian community projects, campaigns and Chagossians facing extreme hardships. We also raised around double of the amount we did in the previous 12 months.
Again she paid thanks to volunteers and generous supporters for making this happen, while noting the overall decrease in our reserve funds meant that commitment to raising funds needed to continued over the next 12 months. Peri's full report can read here.
Full minutes of the meeting are also available here. For any further questions about our AGM, or if you'd like to find out more about getting involved with UK Chagos Support Association, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
