Merry Christmas and all the best for 2014 from the Young Fabian Executive.
The Young Fabians delivered ten packed bags of food donated by our members at the Christmas social to Westminster Chapel Food Bank. With donations ranging from staples like rice to little luxuries like chocolate, the food bank was overwhelmed by the generosity of members.
James said “It’s regrettable that in 21st Century Britain we should have food banks, but while the need is there the Young Fabians will continue to support them. I am so proud of, and grateful to, our members for their immense generosity. They will make a lot of families’ Christmases that bit better”.
e Young Fabians Finance Network met at their AGM on Tuesday led by outgoing Chair Lorna Russell. Three office holders were elected in 2014:
