Agapao officially closes

In the summer I actively encouraged a mass application of people to join the controversial  charity Agapao with the sole intention of running the charity better. 

As far as I am aware all the applications were turned down - nearly all from Haslingden people with years of experience in charitable work.

I wrote to the Charity Commission (and lobbied the minister) about this and also the previous list of complaints which had been investigated and to which Agapao were told they must respond to the Charity Commission's requests.

The Charity has since handed back the Mary Hindle Centre and has now dissolved itself...

Hi Graham, Great news about Agapao!

Congratulations on a great effort on your part, combined with the pressure created by the good people of Haslingden and Rossendale.

Kind regards! Peter Sweetmore
