Welcome to the first of your updates from the East Midlands office! We hope to bring you regular news from the team on what is going on around the region.
We have a full house again in the Loughborough office, with the recent arrival of our two new Regional Coordinators.
Jeremy Gowers-Cromie (Jez) will be looking after Northamptonshire, along with North-West Leicestershire, Charnwood, Hinckley and Bosworth, Blaby and Harborough.
Alexander (Alex) Rodmell will be looking after Lincolnshire, Rutland, Melton, Leicester City (the actual city, not the club!) and Oadby and Wigston.
They join Nick Thorley (Nottinghamshire) and Tom Wyke (Derbyshire).
Keeping the office running are Dan and I, supported by our amazing office volunteers Patrick and Lesley. Between us we answer your calls, emails and letters, process donations and give help and support to the Regional Coordination team.
As we approach Christmas, there has been a flurry of fundraising activity for our Christmas appeal, which this year focuses on our peacemaking work. There is more information, and a wonderful video, on our Christmas pages. Thank you to all who are carol singing, serving Christmas meals, eating mince pies and praying for all those who work towards a peaceful future.
- Emma, Office Coordinator
