Neighbourhood Care Scheme – Sponsored Something or otherPosted on 28th January 2009 by David Botibol
I heard yesterday that someone is doing a sponsored walk or run or something to raise money for the Neighbourhood Care Scheme. Unfortunately the details weren’t to hand, so I couldn’t sign up to it. It sounds like something a lot of us might like to support. Please don’t be shy! If you’re seeking sponsorship, potential sponsors need to know who you are, what the event is, how the payments will be related to your efforts, and how to register their support.
Wouldn’t this blog be a good place to share the information?
Marketing and all thatPosted on 23rd January 2009 by stevelawless
I was interviewed today by the Media Trust which is a charity that supports other charities marketing. It is a really excellent organisation so I was happy to give an hour of my time on the phone. The upshot was that I learnt a lot about the areas of internal and external communications that they think are important. The positive side was that I could honestly give us 10 out of 10 for our website, the work we have done around social networking, our logo, graphics and consistency. I could also give us 10/10 for staff and volunteer involvement.
Back 2 WorkPosted on 9th January 2009 by stevelawless
I had a great holiday. 2 weeks away was so restfull after a period of catching all the bugs going around, real recuperation. Went to ecoChateau for a couple of days. It is a bit run down but there is 18.5 acres of land and the countryside around is so rural. Spent a lot of time chopping logs for the fire as it was pretty cold. Charlie is going to build some yurts for camping in the summer. I plan to go back then. Also spent a lot of time playing my sax. Had a new mouthpiece which is great and have been listening to Clifford Brown. He was really tallented and only 25 when he died in a car accident. 40 years on people still love his music. Coming back to work there is still a lot of illness around. Back to promoting the volunteering strategy and looking forward to seeing new trustees on the board.
