I am very sad to announce that our much-loved colleague, Holly Petersen, is to leave CHIPS in November.

Holly has exciting plans for a future in Clinical Psychology, which is beginning with a masters course starting in October. Unfortunately that course will not fit alongside her role at CHIPS, so she has handed in her notice.
 
We've been hugely blessed by Holly during her year with us as she's re-imagined our communications and significantly improved our relationships with all of you, our generous supporters.
 
She's also helped increase our fundraising as our costs have risen with our new practical peacemaking project in Brixton, South London. Her recent campaign to seek funding to support Josh, our Brixton Team Leader, has had a great start and will be continuing as Josh continues to build relationships and seek peace in Brixton.
 
You'll continue to hear from Holly over the coming 2 months while we recruit for a new Commmunications & Fundraising Officer, as well as for a Volunteer Intern to work alongside them.
 
We know that, as she has blessed us, she will bring great blessing to all those she goes on to work with in future and we pray for her next steps; particularly her time on the masters course.
 
Thank you, Holly. Go in peace!
