My story: Pamela Johnson, former Trustee
"As a trustee I've had the chance to share the passion of all the team and been able to increase the organisation's resources in fundraised income and staff capacity over the last two years so that the charity can carry on doing what audiences love. This has built a real sense of achievement for Babylon Arts, which has seen a growth in audiences and donated income as a result. While it has been hard work and involved challenge, meeting new people connected with the charity who are passionate to make a difference, has made this even more worthwhile."
