Our AGM took place in November, at the Delius Arts & Cultural Centre in Bradford. We were delighted that so many of you could join us and very encouraged by the sea of new faces! Throughout the meeting, we said goodbye and THANK YOU to Judy Midgley, for all the hard work and passion she has put in to BEACON over the years, both as an employee and a member of the Executive. A talk from Mark Taylor, of The Taylor Partnership in Bradford, discussing the barriers to justice facing those seeking asylum and a wonderful performance from the Zephaniah Trust’s Refugee Voices followed the official part of the AGM and were greatly received. We all enjoyed an informative, thought provoking and entertaining evening – we hope you did too!
