Marah Trust celebrated 21 years of service to those in need with an event at St Laurence’s church on Wednesday May 25th . The event was well-attended by volunteers – past and present and people who use Marah’s service. Funders, trustees and representatives from partner agencies also attended, helping to ensure a happy occasion celebrating everything Marah has done for the community in Stroud over the years. A short church service was held by Revd Helen Hill, who also volunteers for Marah, followed by a reflection on Marah’s work. Local folk duo Discovery performed two songs which were very well-received. Marah currently serves over 7,000 meals a year to those in poverty and hunger.
Stella Parkes, Mayor of Stroud Town Council said:
