Those of you who know me will understand that my family has had the joy of experiencing a son with Downs Syndrome and at Christmas our Matthew radiates excitement and Joy. This video for me expresses a lot of what Christmas means to him and to me.

With our Christmas Message newsletter comes the sad news for me that I will be leaving Together Liverpool for pastures new at the end of December. Can I take this opportunity to thank you all  for your support and encouragement over the past 5 years. I am not sure about future newsletters but  know that Julia will be continuing her brilliant work with the Just Finance Foundation in the meantime and might be in touch.

I have very much enjoyed working with you all in this important work for social justice, a key part of the Christian Gospel.

Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a truly blessed New Year. Keep up the great work out there!

John
