Virtual Volunteer Expo well received

A massive thank you to everyone who helped make our first Virtual Volunteer Expo a roaring success and to all our attendees.

We had 14 attendees on our first day who learned some top tips from Merryn Myatt from Perris-Myatt Training on using Zoom, great practical tips that anyone can use even if using technology isn't your strongest skill.

And Jo Grubb from JG Creative taught us all British Sign Language, did you know that it's regional and that sign language is different in different countries and regions. Jo taught us all how to sign our names and again shared top tips for communicating with the deaf community and how we can make things more accessible for them.

We finished off the evening with Nigel Keegan's from Right Minds Clinical Hypnotherapy downloadable Body Scan Relaxation Audio which is available from our on-demand content page.

The fun doesn't stop there though as we've more workshops scheduled from 7:30 tonight starting with Ben Selby from Right at Home South Cheshire and Creating Dementia Friendly Nantwich, hosts an interactive workshop to help volunteers learn how best to spot, assist people with dementia.

Jan Ferguson, a Humanist Celebrant gives us some hints and tips on how to listen more effectively.

Finish off the session by watching North Staffs Mind video on how to make a facemask on our buddies website here.

You can sign up for our second Virtual Volunteer Expo on Event Brite here and look out for details of the sessions we'll be running next week which will include a Creative Writing Workshop: Building Character run by local author Mark Bickerton.
