On the 16th May there was a gathering in Henley, of all the wonderful people who signed up to be CHIPS Ambassadors. It was really special having so many people who were passionate about peace and the work of CHIPS in the same place. A huge thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to the day. We really appreciate all your amazing efforts and support of CHIPs as a charity.

People came from all over England and Scotland to explore together what being an Ambassador could look like. It was a gloriously sunny day, and so sessions took place both inside and on the lawn. There were times of brain storming, eating, socialising, listening to talks and planning.

One slot was spent exploring together what an Ambassador could involve. One attendee remarked that everyone there were already being Ambassadors in their own ways and that being given the official title wasn't about being given any extra work, but more about how the group could be acknowledged for their contributions and how the CHIPS Office Team could equip them more effectively to be able to share the vision of peace.

It was a really great day and we came away with lots of ideas of CHIPS resources to create for you all. Stay tuned to see what comes from this exciting new venture. If you would like to become a CHIPS Ambassador yourself, please contact holly on holly@chipspeace.org.
