PROVIDING STAY-AT-HOME KIDS WITH ONLINE TECH
John Brown of Tealby Schoool accepting three laptops from CAFA for pupils remote learning
Following a very successful campaign for preloved computers, laptops, tablets and printers CAFA, with the technical help of Les Bonner, have managed to supply a number of children with much needed, up-to-date tech, so that they can access their online school work and classes.
"It is a delight to upgrade these laptops and tablets. It takes a while, but I know they will be going to schools and pupils who really need them", said Les Bonner. He continued, "I'm very keen to get even more, because I know in this area, there are quite a lot of families that are struggling to get online."
CAFA are currently asking people to consider donating their old laptops, tablets, iPads and printers to the campaign. Each piece of kit is completely cleared down and updated with Windows 10, so that online learning using Google Classrooms, Zoom, Teams, You Tube and the Internet can be viewed.
If you would like to donate to this very worthwhile campaign please contact Les Bonner at firstname.lastname@example.org
Chatty Café Scheme
We are looking for cafés, large and small to get involved with the Chatty Café Scheme so that just maybe we can make the Chatter & Natter table a part of everyday café culture.
A Chatter & Natter table brings people together and everyone is invited! If you’re on your own, in a couple, with a friend, if you’re a carer why not sit there with who you care for, mums and babies, dads and babies, grandparents and babies, young people, older people and anyone in between!
When you are deciding where to sit, look for the Chatter & Natter table and sit there! Stay for five minutes while you have your drink or longer. It’s not about making friends, just having good old fashioned human interaction and bringing our Community together!
Accessible Market Rasen
According to Visit Britain more than one in six people in England and Wales have an ‘activity limiting’ health problem or disability.
British and international visitors from this market segment currently spend over £3 billion on overnight tourism trips in England each year. And that doesn't include people with children using prams and buggies - in short, in the main Market Rasen has excellent pavements and walk ways - promoting our accessibility could improve local business and attract a new segment of visitors to Market Rasen and our glorious surrounding areas.
