President of War on Want and former General Secretary of UNISON Rodney Bickerstaffe brought the house down with his gags and self deprecating humour, and made this one of the most inspiring and enjoyable events we’ve had.
Members, supporters and friends continue to support social events as fund-raising becomes increasingly important in the run-up to next year’s elections. A big thanks to all.
Julie Carpenter, seen here with Rodney, is a founder and director of Education for Change, a consulting and research organisation working with governments and international development agencies in countries of the global South – the so-called ‘developing world’. At our Curry Night on 28 January 2015, Julie will share some facts and insights into the development business after 30 years observation of and involvement in development programmes.
