It’s so lovely to be described as an ‘award winning’ social organisation. The Big Issue Invest Tech for Good Challenge has been a great platform for us as we have made essential contacts – not just introductions to new business, but we have met new supporters as well. For example someone from Merrill Lynch is now mentoring our Development Director Barrie Taylor (IT) which I know will be of great help.
I would like to pass a resounding congratulations to the team who have worked so hard to build our system. We have had some extremely good comments come in from our latest new organisation on board from Herefordshire (HVOSS) “Our clubs have been able to pick it up so quickly and easily.
I love being the bearer of good news – we are also welcoming HVOSS (Herefordshire Voluntary Organisations Support Service) with the first tranche of their clubs and another Voluntary provision from south London also hoping to join us soon with 50. This means we can finally start to see many more clubs on board and using the system. Both Wiltshire and Barnet should start to see their clubs using the site in the next few weeks – we just have to wait for them to load them onto the system (patience is a virtue, Sally).
