Transforming lives through offering food, shelter, hope and support to the most vulnerable in our community

Queens Award

Spring of Hope

If you're a supporter of our work, we'd love for you to join us at our AGM. We'll be celebrating the achievements of the past year, looking at the difference we've made to our clients and our city. We'll also have a message from a specially invited speaker. (We'll announce who this is closer to the date.)

You'll hear directly from your Board of Trustees as they present their Annual Report and Accounts for the 2016/7 financial year, and there will be opportunity to ask them any questions you might have. After that, we'll be sharing our bold plans for the future.

Trudy, Support Worker for Spring of Hope Women's Night Shelter, joined the team in November 2016. Almost a year later, we thought it was high time we asked her a bit about herself.

What were you doing before you joined CCM?

Before I joined CCM I was at home caring for a family member. Prior to that I was a teaching assistant.

What made you apply for the role?

I was encouraged by Christian friends and family to apply. I was already volunteering and was so encouraged by the work here.
