Festive e-greetings with Brendoncare!

Written by: Alison Reijman Published: December 5, 2023

With Christmas and New Year just round the corner, we cannot help but look back at 2023, when we first launched our brand-new initiative, Digital Connections.

Throughout the year, our Digital Connections Team visited 12 clubs to talk to our members about different ways we can support them with their internet and digital needs. We have also run 16 online interactive, fun workshops. These have been on a variety of topics such as Zoom and audiobooks as well as online safety and shopping, which were very well attended.

The last workshop of the year will take place on 7th December  (14:00 – 15:00): Festive e-greetings. This workshop is designed to help you send e-cards free of charge – just in time for Christmas. We will also demonstrate how you can include your own photos in these e-cards. If you would like to try something new this year while saving money on postage, why don’t you book your place here?

If you have never used Zoom before, please remember that we are only a phone call (or email!) away! Get in touch with us and we will help you set up your Zoom account in no time. This will give you the choice to attend and take part in our online events as well as the in-person ones, which are part of your Brendoncare membership offer.  You can also use Zoom to keep in touch with your friends and family during the approaching cold winter months.

Drop-in sessions

Our monthly digital drop-in sessions that take place at 16:30 on the first Tuesday of every month, and next one is on 5th December. If you have an IT related question or having trouble with your tablet or phone, please come along and our Training and Support Officer, Yildizhan Negargar, will answer your questions. You can book your place for this session here or simply call our office on 01962 857099.

Big Quiz

This month, our monthly Big Quiz will take place on 27th December at 14:00 presented by Yildizhan. On 28th December at 15:00, you can also join us with our Jingle and Mingle: A Holiday Get Together, when we look back at the events of 2023 with a quiz and watch a holiday movie together.  You can use our monthly code to take part in both events or book your place here.

Please don’t forget to check our blog next month again the updates about the activities we have planned for you in 2024! Until then, have a wonderful Christmas and stay safe!
