1st July 2015



This month we heard from our new nominated charity – Jane Barnes of Bromley Mencap.  Jane explained how they provide a range of services and activities for disabled people, their parents and carers. She also explained the extent of the services Bromley Mencap offers and the size of the fundraising task they face.  Jane was able to update us on an  exciting project in development and explain some fo the ways that Laptops members could help support the charity going forward.
Quote of the Month?


‘I can also offer training on how to use the timer on an ipad’ Frances Alushani of Easy PC Coaching after several false starts by other members on timing the 1 minutes



Each year we award free membership to a local charity.  We aim to support their events – both as a Group and as individual businesses.  We also commit to organise at least one fundraising event  in aid of the Charity.  This year we are very proud to be working with Bromley Mencap.
