Playskill AGM 2022

On November 9, we welcomed guests to Playskill’s first AGM to be held in person for three years. A new addition of a hybrid option to join online saw almost 100 guests both at Adeyfield Free Church and joining via Zoom.

Guest speaker, Katharine Weston introduced Mission EmployAble – a Hertfordshire charity providing young adults with learning disabilities training and job opportunities. Talking alongside Playskill’s Founder & Director and Trustees who shared the charity’s achievements over the past year and forthcoming plans.

Stars of the show were Playskill parents who shared their stories, giving an insight in to the far-reaching benefits of our service, which go way beyond the expert therapies in group. Alongside pre-recorded speeches, Vinay – whose daughter Aliyana attends group - spoke movingly in person which left guests reaching for the tissues.

Congratulations to award winners on the night – Fundraiser of the Year went to Vinay who raised a whopping £22,000 when he swam the length of Britain’s largest lake over the Summer.

And to Volunteer of the Year, Tracy O’Brien for her tireless hours volunteering – from providing therapy in group, to bucket collections and half marathons, and much more.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on the night, both in person and online. Your support is so very much appreciated.
