  • To approve the Minutes from the last Annual General Meeting, held on 16th December 2020
  • To receive and note the Trustees’ Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31st December 2020
  • To note the re-appointment of Sayer Vincent as auditors until the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting

* Cochrane’s Articles of Association allow the charity to hold a hybrid in-person and online Annual General Meeting. Due to current travel and meeting restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, we invite participants to attend online. There are a very limited number of in-person attendees allowed at the charity’s registered office at St Albans House in London, United Kingdom, and these spaces have already been allocated. The Trustees are satisfied that this meeting has been set up to allow full participation online.
