Britain Yearly Meeting

Trustees have booked a Q-CAT stall at the Groups Fair on Sunday evening 6th May, during Britain Yearly Meeting, and would welcome help looking after this.  We hope to have a rota so everyone also has a chance to look round the Fair.  We plan to have a display of our leaflets and materials and some from other likeminded bodies, probably a petition for people to sign, a repeated showing of From Horror to Healing, and hope to interest passers-by in our Concern and get them to sign up for Newsletters and Briefings.  If you can help please email
