Paul is working full time for Europe
Paul is the UK Director of Europe Now, and is
responsible for much of the teaching on the Snowball training
programme. However, Europe Now only employs Paul part-time
at present, as we don't yet have enough support coming in to fund
Until the start of October 2000, Paul was only working for
Europe Now. Since then, Paul has been working 3 days a week
for the Crisis Centre in Bristol.

Sue is working full time for Knightstone Housing Association,
where she is a Team Administrator. This work cuts down
Sue's involvement with Europe Now on a day to day basis, and it
means that Paul needs to spend time (especially during school
holidays) looking after the boys, but is necessary until our
support level increases a bit more.
We have received a number of generous gifts since Paul started
working for Europe Now, for which we are very grateful.
These gifts are slowing increasing, which is very encouraging.
However, we are still finding it very difficult to
attract regular financial suppport, and the one-off gifts are
not yet meeting our financial needs.
On the plus side, we are slowly repaying the loan we took out
to cover the legal fees from the purchase of Abbeywood.
On the other hand, we are owing Steve Poulard more money each
month, as we fail to make our repayments on the loan to him for
part of our share of the house.
