The start of the StF CodeClub

At Save the Family we are constantly striving for ways to enrich the lives of the children that live onsite. Several months ago I met an amazing lady from Code Club North West, part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based charity that works to put the power of computing and digital making into the hands of people all over the world. They do this so that more people are able to harness the power of computing and digital technologies for work, to solve problems that matter to them, and to express themselves creatively.

It was soon identified that the lack of computers would definitly hamper our Coding adventures going forward so Liz put us in touch with a lady who works for BoschUK. On Saturday we had a shipment of used laptops delivered courtesy of BoschUK. All had the Raspberry Pi operating system installed on them and are ready to go! We now have the capacity to cater for 10 children at a time and I am looking forward to learning some coding as we go on!

Thank you Liz @CodeClubNW and Lisa from BoschUK for all you have done for the children at Save the Family.

May was a sad month here at Save the Family

May was a sad month for us here at Save the Family. We had to say goodbye to a friend and valued Trustee, Pauline Jackson.

Pauline worked tirelessly for Save the Family for over 4 years. We have planted a tree within the Sensory Garden in her memory. We hope its roots are as steadfast as her loyalty. She will be greatly missed.
