May 2020

A massive thank you to County Durham Community Foundation - who awarded us nearly £5,000 in May 2020 to help Members access activities and stay in touch with staff and each other during the Covid-19 quarantine. We were able to purchase 10 new Ipads which are now all in use via our device loan scheme, bringing Zumba, Bingo, Cookery and so very much more into our members lives. We have printed and delivered paper versions of our current newsletter and also purchased dongles to provide or enhance internet access where needed.
