Volunteers enthused by first Link One Annual Meeting!

On 26th September Link One held its first Annual Meeting for staff and volunteers, reviewing our first year and looking forward to the future.

Volunteers left feeling inspired and enthused. Here’s feedback from one of the attendees:

“I was really glad I came – I feel a part of the vision now. The inspiration, the vitality of the Hub team brought it all alive! I know where I’m going and I can see how committed the Hub team are to the vision. It’s powerful!”

Highlights of the day

  • Icebreakers and a shared lunch to help people get to know each other
  • A presentation by Beckie Reeves, Link One Manager, covering our successes, challenges, and plans for the future
  • An in-depth chat with Stephen Sharpe, Life CEO, about the current state of Life’s rebirth
  • Training sessions, delivered by Pregnancy Matters™

“Very satisfied with the day. Had pace and purpose, a lot of new information shared openly. Good to be updated on Link One’s priorities and plans for the future. Great to meet other Life volunteers … Excellent lunch and a good central location.”

A bright future

Link One is the first Life Regional Hub – the first step in Life’s restructure. As a result of this restructuring, Life is becoming more strategic, proactive, and innovative. Stephen Sharpe, Life CEO, also had an informal but very in-depth chat with attendees about the state of Life’s relaunch.

Here’s what attendees had to say:

“Since re-structuring much more progress had been made than I had appreciated.”

“I am pleased to learn how Life Charity is rationalising its resources in order to improve the services the Charity can offer.”

“I am happy to see the Charity becoming more proactive.”

A thank you to our volunteers for their support

With the support of Life Groups and volunteers, as well as the national team, Link One has had an exciting and – for Life – a groundbreaking year.

The Annual Meeting ended with a short thank-you video to thank staff and especially volunteers for their work making all this possible:

“I loved going to the event – it renews you!”

“The day went extremely well … Excellent, informative, professional and well presented.”
