On the 20th October, The Valley Trust (TVT) held a breakfast event to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the organisation. Themed, “70 Years Tells A Story”, the event was held in the TVT hall and was attended by past Executive Directors and board members, current board members, past and present staff members, community members, representatives from TVT’s partners and members of the family of Dr Halley Stott, the founder of TVT. Speakers who addressed the audience recalled the founding of TVT, what it was like to work with the pioneering Dr Stott and how the organisation had impacted their lives.
The festive atmosphere was complemented with entertainment provided by local musicians and a traditional dance group. TVT extends its deep gratitude to those who made it on the day and others who couldn’t make it but sent their messages of support and encouragement.
