The accounts had been checked and signed off by an external examiner, Mrs Williams. A vote of thanks for her was proposed and seconded.
Jane Case spoke about the two fundraising collections. One held at Tesco raised £302 while a town collection raised £403.52.
Office manager Scilla Rackman gave an update about the new drivers and those who had left.
She also spoke about the difficulty of parking at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading and the Oxford hospitals.
