What we did – June to October 2018

We have been busy!

We have had 30 to 40 people, sometimes more, every Wednesday morning. So posting on this blog has not been top priority. And we don’t do as much photography as we used to, mainly because of the extra admin load dealing with the consent forms, and general GDPR-related uncertainty.

But we have remembered to acknowledge all the volunteers from Benefacto — the list is on the Benefacto volunteers page.

What we did – 14 March 2018

We broke our attendance record — 39 people!

Special thanks to volunteers Gary, Jaspal, John, Richard and Tracy from Legg Mason via Benefacto – plus regular volunteers Derek, Michael, Molly, Ram, Sol and Tom.

What we did – 21 February 2018

As an added activity, we asked everybody to complete the BBC Loneliness Experiment survey, and to test the new Skype number for the podcast. It was impossible to count the successes, but it kept everybody busy.

Special thanks to volunteers James and Terence from Baringa via Benefacto – plus our regular volunteers Michael and Tom.

What we did – 24 January 2018

As usual, we were completely full (30 or more people). The highlight was the beginners word-processing workshop, featuring volunteers Lucy, Mark, Paul, Zaida and 1:1 CV help by Saleha — all from GFT Group via Benefacto.

Special thanks also to our regular volunteers Charlie, Derek, Michael and Tom.

What we did – 17 January 2018

Completely full in the large Meeting Room. The ICT Room was given over to a research team from Citizens Advice — eight people earned a £25 shopping voucher after helping the team with the usability of a new web form design.

Special thanks to our regular volunteers Charlie, Derek, Liz, Michael and Tom.
