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 – 22 November 2017

We thought the session would be quieter than usual because a clashing event had drawn away some of our regulars. But we were almost overwhelmed by the number of people who did turn up. We can’t claim it was the highest attendance yet because we lost count after 30. Next week we will expand into the community centre’s newly refurbished IT Room — with new desktops for 8 people and space for up to 4 other users and volunteers.

Special thanks to volunteers Ajay & Bradley (from Carey Group) and Olly from Mace Group, via Benefacto – and our regular volunteers Derek and Michael.

The atmosphere is nice

My helper

When I come to drop-in center I really enjoy myself.

The atmosphere is friendly, you meet people have a chat.

When I come to the drop-in center I have learned how to switch the computer on. I can go to you tube where I can see how to knit  crochet, play games and learn more about the  computer.

To day is a very busy day at the center there are people coming going every minute the bell rings.
