I like to do my bit for charity, and having web development skills enables me to actually make a difference and rather than just donate money to charity, I like to help out local charities by building websites for free.
This year I am supporting three charities; Eve Merton Dream’s Trust, Kinder and One Day at a Time.
Once again 2015 sees the return of Doncaster based music festival, Rugby Rocks. Just like last year, I have built a new website through which event founder and organiser Craig Ridgill can publicise the events, make line-up announcements and most importantly, sell tickets. The event raised a lot of money last year for two local charities, Eve Merton Dreams Trust and Kinder and we are all hoping that 2015’s event is an even bigger success.
I’ll be going down to support the event, and I hope that some of you readers (and local clients) will do the same. To find out more about the event and to buy tickets, visit the 2015 Rugby Rocks website here.
I was recently approached by my old pal Simon Lindsay, who asked me if I could help out a guy who was starting a new charity. One Day at a Time is a newly formed charity set up to help the parents of children who are diagnosed with Leukemia. The charity founder, Craig Boulton, has a young daughter called Daisy, who back in October 2014 was diagnosed with the illness, which obviously turned Craig and his families life upside-down.
Craig decided to set up the charity to help families like his own who have the struggle of being in and out of hospital with their children on a regular basis, for long periods of time.
I’m proud to have been asked to support both Rugby Rocks and One Day at a Time and I would be delighted if you would take a look at their websites and show them some support in any way you can.
