Funds had stayed healthy thanks to fundraising events, grants and donations. He thanked the volunteers for their hard work over the year and also volunteer Lillian Martin, who left just before the summer break. She was one of the original volunteers in 2000. A letter of thanks had been sent and a collection made by members and volunteers to thank her for her work.
