Forum’s annual President’s Dinner was held on 12th October at the Hollins Hey Hotel, New Brighton. The event, which was hosted by Forum’s President Mrs Chris Allen BEM, provided the opportunity to celebrate another successful year.
Attendees included the Mayor, Mrs Ann McLachlan and her consort, husband Bill, the Association’s Patron, Bishop Keith Sinclair who was accompanied by his wife Rosie, as well as numerous Association Board members and Staff.
Guests were treated to a wine reception and four course dinner which was followed by a presentation by guest speaker Avril Devaney MBE who talked inspiringly about the work of the Jamie Devaney Memorial Fund, a UK based charity which supports mental health care in Uganda.
President Chris Allen then presented our staff with the Player of the Year Awards. The six categories represent the core values of the Association and provide the opportunity to recognise the hard work and dedication of staff, Board and Association members.
