Travelling home from a fantastic team building and planning session at the Indian YMCA in London, we’ve all had a brilliant time in the company of the rest of the team – there’s been lots of laughter and fun playing games, singing songs and practicing craft and activities as well as informative and thought provoking talks and conversations particularly about poverty – what it is, how we can make a difference and whether we can really make a difference at all. 688 more words
