Celebrating Alabaré's Work With Vulnerable People In Wiltshire
14th March 2013
Event celebrates Alabaré’s work with vulnerable in Wiltshire
Salisbury MP John Glen, the Deputy Lieutenant of Wiltshire and other distinguished guests recently joined us at a recent celebration of our charity’s work at Alabaré Place. The highly successful evening, which was organised by Alabaré’s Wiltshire Ambassadors, was a chance for visitors to have a look around Alabaré Place, our Places of Change hostel, meet staff and residents, hear about our work across Wiltshire and national plans, including those for veterans, for the future. Two residents, David and Martin, spoke emotively about their experiences living on the streets, the progress they are making and their hopes for the future.
Alabaré Chairman, John Proctor, concluded the evening by summarising the total scope of Alabaré’s work. Some of the guests remarked that they had not appreciated the tremendous strides that Alabaré is making in many different aspects and locations.
Commodore Richard Lord, Chairman Wiltshire Ambassadors said “Alabaré Place is a fine example of care at its best and provides an excellent insight into the high standards that Alabaré is renowned for across all its activities. I am delighted that this inspires more people to want to help. I am extremely thankful for the donations and offers of further involvement that have been made as a result of this event, and also for the help we had in putting on this reception at minimal cost.”
