Give a Gift that Counts….

We are delighted to invite you to Community Action: MK Festive Networking event for the voluntary and community sector organisations in Milton Keynes.

We are organising this festive session on Thursday 15th December at our office on the 3rd floor at Acorn House, Midsummer Boulevard, MK9 3HP. Spaces are limited, so please make sure that you have registered on Eventbrite – click here reserve a space.
