Suggest a one line invite to IT Workshop

I am hoping this will be a start to design a card to invite carers to register with Hackney!

What would you put on a card, to give to people you meet that YOU meet who are Carers, to encourage them to come to the workshop?

Example:

I would like to invite you,to come to the IT workshop, where I learn about how to use computers and phones myself.

On the Back would be:

Wednesday morning 10-1pm

Whitmore Community Centre, 2-4 Phillipp St, London N1 5NU

GoodGym | Coach runs

Over a million older people in the UK are always or often lonely, some go for months without seeing friends or family. Visiting an older person as part of your weekly run can make a huge difference to their life.

We call the older people we visit coaches because they help motivate us to run and they share their wisdom. It’s amazing what you can learn from your coach. Coach runs can be fit around your schedule and don’t need to take up more than 20 minutes of your time per week.

What we did – 18 October 2017

Today’s hero is Wadley — learning IT and sharing what he already knows a lot about. Wadley is a genius in the kitchen — fed everybody with his own Saltfish-&-Ackee recipe (plus yellow yam, plantain, and dasheen).

Also special thanks to volunteers Cathy and Gemma from Bernstein Alliance, via Benefacto – and our regular volunteers Charlie, Derek and Michael.

BBC | NHS Tracker: Check key targets in your area

Use our tracker to check whether your local services are meeting strict waiting-time targets for cancer, routine operations and A&E.

The NHS is under unprecedented pressure. Rising numbers of patients need hospital care – whether in an accident and emergency department, for cancer treatment or for planned operations and care, such as knee and hip replacements.

For each there are strict targets local services are expected to meet across the UK. But what are the chances of being seen in time where you live? Use the interactive tracker to find out.
