Regenesis Squared Annual Report

Chairpersons Introduction
I have the pleasure of presenting the Third Annual Report. Regenesis Squared was only formed in 2007, but in a short span of time we have moved from our original home in Wythenshawe to Fallowfield (the old Loreto Convent) in September 2007 and achieved all the things we have. 2009-10 was a blistering year of change. The Centre faced the unprecedented challenge of being closed, but the team came together and worked flat-out to convince the Council that we were worth supporting. With the support of many, many local people and politicians we turned everything round and the Centre has official approval now! Particular thanks go to Aisha Mirza who led on the Planning Permission application thank you and well done to all the team. On a more personal note, one of the founders of the Regenesis Squared has moved onto bigger and brighter things Asia Mehasi - and she is now working hard developing other charities, both locally and nationally. Well done and thank you to Asia for having supported the organisation through difficult times and having steered us into new uncharted and exciting waters. And good luck for the future!
