  • St John’s host their largest Annual Reception

At the end of September, we hosted our Annual Reception in the beautiful Ballroom at Bath Assembly Rooms. Our new CEO, David Hobdey and Chair of Trustees, Ben Fletcher, welcomed over 300 guests, and shared St John’s new strategic direction, which is set to tackle some of the community’s more pressing social issues.

We were treated to a heartfelt talk from local hairdresser, Eddie, of Eddie’s Street Cuts, who after experiencing some difficult years himself, managed to turn himself around and now, with a desire to ‘give something back’, provides free haircuts to Bath’s homeless community.

Our guests were also given a sneak preview of a new film we’ve commissioned called ‘A Roof Over My Head’.  Created by local company, Meaningful Films, it shows the realities of homelessness and the incredible work that is being done by local organisations to help this issue.

The premiere will be held at Komedia on Wednesday 13 November and we would love you to join us. To book your free place please visit Komedia’s website here.
