Speeches came from Terry Moran, the Chair of St. Anne’s Board, and also from our CEO, Derek Bray. Our special guest speaker was Henry Normal, aka Pete Carroll. Henry, together with Steve Coogan, established TV comedy production company Baby Cow Productions, and he also co-wrote The Royle Family. Henry’s speech came from the heart as he related to his life experiences and he shared some very special and relevant poetry which the audience appreciated very much.
Henry suggested that the services provided with St. Anne’s were based on love, and many people in the audience shared this sentiment.

To cap it all, there was a celebration of many staff training achievements and long service awards.
Niamh Foley won the St. Anne’s Employee of the Year award for her massive contribution to IT Training.
Well done and thank you to all those who attended, and we look forward to a similar event in 2017.
