Laptop will help good work continue

A charity in need now has a laptop to use after getting a funding boost from Brackley Rotary Club.

Home-Start recruits and trains volunteers to support parents and young families with home visits.

Volunteers offer a caring 
attitude to widen links within the community but they 
needed a new laptop to increase efficiency and help minimise travel costs.

And thanks to the Rotary Club, Homestart has been able to buy a brand new laptop, to help continue their good work.

Carol Hulm, Home Start’s 
local scheme manager, said: “We are delighted with this new facility supporting our development.”

Susan Hampshire, who has been president of the club for four years, said: “I was the second female president which caused a few problems but now we have four female members and it changes the dynamics of the club so we have a different approach to what we do.

“It’s a local charity and we know people who use the service.”

Members of the Rotary Club have been involved with charities such as Marie Curie and The Red Cross and take on a different charity each year.

President of the Rotary Club, Susan Hampshire said: 
“Husbands, wives and families turn out to show support not just our members.”

Their upcoming plans include helping a village in Kenya to collect water and supply them with a well.
