Virtual Festival 2020!
It was great to see so many faces at the quiz and to see all of your competition entries... we were impressed by your baking skills, amazed by the picnic setups people put together (despite the pretty poor weather) and entertained by peoples photo recreations!
CACH-All 'cach' up
Thanks to all those who were able to make it to our CACH-ALL 'cach' up over the weekend, it was great to chat to everyone, even if we did slightly lack in numbers!
We hope to arrange some more meet ups, and get to know everyone a little better, and hopefully move to some in person meet ups as soon as we can!
It was a very relaxed catch-up with other adoptees (13+) and a funny icebreaker game!
Survey of the Membership
In November 2019 we sent a survey to the membership to guide the future direction of the organisation. There was a great response, with lots of constructive comments, and the committee really appreciates the time taken by members to do this.
When the committee next meets in person we will use this information to inform our decision making on the strategic direction of the organisation.
CACH-All Family Quiz Night #2!
Thank you to all those who attended our 2nd CACH-All family quiz 0n June 20th! We had a great turnout with over 30 families joining us for a fun evening with some creative quiz rounds! It was great to see both some new and familiar faces! Congrats to the winners the Islington Invincibles!
Thanks to Josie for organising and keep your eyes peeled for our next event announcement which is coming soon!
Thank you to everyone for joining the Q&A with Li-da Kruger a few weeks ago! We hope you all enjoyed it - if you missed the Q&A, we're trying to post it here (but technical issue due to size) in the meantime you can see it on the CACH-All fb page: www.facebook.com/Cachallorg/videos/168181301399768/
Also thank you to those who submitted questions in advance, we tried to fit in as many as we could into the time constraints.
Li-da has kindly shared the links to her first documentary “Belonging”: vimeo.com/205931510 (password: nkfc), and the deleted “Sacred Dancers” scene from her recent documentary with Prue (Li-da describes it as a scene that encapsulated her link to Cambodia, giving back, exploring her birth country): vimeo.com/419223471 (password: nkfc)!
