Chief Executive’s rhyming report
Celebrating with pride in our 55th year
I’ll outline today some snippets of the financial year
More details of which are set out here,
In this purple report crammed with photos and stories
And our audited accounts, full of stats and inventories
Our first aim is an ambitious one, under which much has been done
Pages 16 and 17 may be a revelation to you,
Showing the scope of all the activities we do
Alongside national and local events and courses.
Our second aim, about influencing change
Has seen us delivering an impressive range
Of initiatives whose impact will over time sustain
Our third aim, I hope you’ll agree, conveys what to us is key
Ambassadors young and old using their dyslexia voice
Volunteers donating hours of support out of choice
Each quarter, members contribute to our new look mag,
Every one of them flying the dyslexia flag.
Aim Four may at times feel like a chore
Competing for grants to deliver services that are core
I suspect this will strike a chord with our Board
Always ready to face challenges that cannot be ignored!
Behind the scenes the team juggles priorities to achieve
Taking time out to reflect, evaluate – and also breathe
Celebrating with pride in our 55th year,
While, looking ahead, the journey ahead is clear.
I cannot close without extending my sincere gratitude
I hope this does not feel like a platitude
I really do appreciate everyone’s dedication and support
To every single person mentioned in this report.
