Dear Supporter of Oxford City of Sanctuary,

– Chair’s Review of the Year.
– Treasurer’s Report on Finances.
– Feedback on pledges from all of you and general discussion.
– Election of next year’s management committee.
Numbers are currently restricted to 70 so please ensure there is a place for you by letting us know as soon as possible if you intend to come to this meeting (by RSVPing to [email protected] If more than 70 of you want to come we will do our best to find a larger venue but need to know soon in order to do this.
If you would like to stand for the management committee next year you would be most welcome – we are keen to attract applications from anyone able and willing to help with the workload (so do put yourself forward/spread the word/encourage others if you know anyone suitable). To apply (and anyone can) just write no more than 100 words about yourself and how you might contribute to Oxford City of Sanctuary (this will then go on the voting form) and send it to myself, the acting chair, using this email: [email protected] not later than Saturday 5th of December. Applications from refugees or asylum seekers are particularly welcome.
You can find a copy of the Chair’s Annual Report 2015 here CoS 2015 Chair’s Annual Report .
Finally, if you can, please bring an item of non-perishable food for Asylum Welcome’s Food Cupboard.
With very best wishes
Chair of Oxford City of Sanctuary
