Impact48 is beyond delighted to announce that we have a venue for the Edinburgh Cyrenians Weekend in October! The fine and generous people at Attacat Internet Marketing have offered their lovely and perfectly placed George Street office as the location for all of the weekend’s events!
Without the help of generous organisations and the people who work within them, the Impact48 weekends could not take place, simple as that! So we would like to take a moment to say a massive thank you to Tim Barlow and all of the Attacat team!
With the venue sorted and just over two weeks to go, things are shaping up nicely! I managed to catch up with Phil Reilly, Adminstration Coordinator at Cyrenians, to ask him what he hopes the Impact48 Weekend can achieve for Edinburgh Cyrenians.
Phil: “We hope that the Impact48 weekend will help us progress some of our current ideas around marketing, communication and fundraising (areas where we don’t have as many resources available to us as we would like); as well as help us make some progress in the initial stages of what we hope will turn out to be an innovative recycling service. We look forward to meeting and working alongside all the volunteers, and are delighted to have been offered such an exciting and creative opportunity.”
Here at Impact48 we are equally excited, we just can’t wait to see what the hard work of our volunteers over the weekend will achieve for Edinburgh Cyrenians. We are so pleased to be working alongside Edinburgh Cyrenians and to have the chance to contribute to the truly inspiring work that they do.
There is still time to get involved!
We are still welcoming volunteers for the next Edinburgh Cyrenians Impact48 weekend in October. We are looking for all sorts of volunteers, so you don’t need to fit into the techie, creative, designer or developer “type.” If you would like to find out more or volunteer for our next weekend please get in touch with us! Email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking for other kinds of assistance for the weekend such as sponsors or perhaps fuel for the volunteers! Could you or your business help? Find out more about sponsoring or get in touch with us at email@example.com.
You can also sign up to our newsletter, like our Impact48 page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @RealImpact48, use the Twitter hashtag #impact48.
Thanks again Attacats! We’ll get the kettle on.
