In January, Community Mortgage Movement agreed to be a sponsor for the Community Living London’s Night of Heroes. This night will be held on February 22, 2018 at the Convention Centre. This will be the third year that Community Mortgage Movement has sponsored the event. You can see a recap from the 24th annual Night of Heroes here.
This month I also attended a regular leadership development committee meeting at the London Community Foundation. This charity works with many leaders and advisors in the London area and to help ensure that the group remains in touch with the London community.
Another event that we agreed to sponsor is the “Night of Country in the Country”- in support of My Sisters Place. My Sisters Place aims to reduce homelessness for women and to support women to find and keep safe, affordable housing. At the same time, we connect women with CMHA Middlesex mental health services
