Day planned 2 weeks in advance……..volunteer issues, boat battery won’t charge, high winds forecast. Doesn’t stop us !!! Another great day despite some minor setbacks.

Met some key contacts who can help us grow our organisation. Even found a new volunteer !! Exciting times for New Children’s Pathways
