We are writing to you as you are on the mailing list of Damaris Trust which was recently closed by its Trustees due to insolvency.
We acquired the assets of Damaris Trust when it went into administration earlier this year. Initially some people were concerned that the assets of the charity would be lost. The purpose of this email is to assure you that they are being used for good and that the charitable purposes of Damaris Trust continue to be served through a new organisation. We, the Directors of Vox Caritas Ltd, have many years of experience in leading charities and related organisations. In particular, Mark Markiewicz was the National Director for YWAM, Tim Waldron was the Chairman of the YMCA and Steve Cross has developed technical solutions for TearFund and many other charities. We are also pleased to have taken Steve Alexander, Judy May (Archer) and Sophie Lister into employment. The staff of Damaris Trust were obviously disappointed when it closed and it is such a pleasure to enable some of them to continue their work.
The assets of Damaris Trust included the resources that Nick and Carol Pollard had developed for Schools and Churches. We were pleased to gift these assets back to the Pollards so that they can continue their work in those areas. Nick and Carol have their own website at www.nickandcarolpollard.org
. If you would like to keep in contact with them then we encourage you to visit their website and sign up to receive their email updates. We wish Nick and Carol all the best in their work and we have done all we can to enable them in this new season. With the Pollards we have agreed to publish a public statement which you can read on the Vox Caritas website
The future of Damaris Media
The Damaris film resources for community groups continue to be developed and we are really pleased that Judy May, who worked for Damaris Trust, has returned to lead this initiative. Judy brings a wealth of expertise and relationships with the film companies in the UK and was involved in the creation of many of the former Damaris Trust resources. She is joined by a creative team of writers, some of whom worked for Damaris Trust, and we have also added our Los Angeles representative, Marc Whitmore, to the team to liaise with film companies in Hollywood.
