On Saturday, we hosted our 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Augustine United Church in Edinburgh.
We partnered with Licketyspit who hosted a good part of the day, leading play activities tailored for young and old alike. Over the course of the morning, Licketyspit progressively brought out the inner child in every person in the room.
We ate lunch all around the same table and Licketyspit pleased our tastebuds with their homemade soup with an assortment of bread and fruit. Wholesome food for a wholesome day!
Following lunch, the mobile creche took children across to the National Museum to marvel and play with the interactive exhibits. Back at the church, we had our AGM.
Our Chair, Bill Wright, gave an update on our activities since the last AGM in May 2018, and extended thanks to the Scottish Inherited Bleeding Disorders Network (SIBDN) and the haemophilia centres for their hard work. Thanks was also extended to Susan Warren, who since the last AGM, has stood down after 8 years with Haemophilia Scotland, as Deputy Chair and President.
Our CEO, Dan Farthing-Sykes, gave the financial report and explained how we’re in a season where we’re going to have to tighten our belts a little bit, so we’ll be hosting events at church/town halls instead of hotels to save money where we can. There’s a lot more focus on income generation and we have a plan in place to address this.
Thank you for rallying together in the lead up to the AGM to ensure we met quorum. It is with your help and support that we can proclaim that the AGM was a success!
