Jo & Yvette attended a FREE Workshop today hosted by Virgin Money Giving website, It took place in the Babbage Building of Plymouth University the 2.5 hours covered the in depth workings of our Charity account and its major functions aside from the fact it gives us access to our doners to thank them personally and how to make better use of our page and ther services offered by Virgin to charities. Some items where not applicable to us because of our charities size, but we're sure we learnt something today?... Didn't we?
Can everyone please join in Congratulating Bethany Tate on her succesful interview to become a member of the

3 new faces joined the group: Esther, Jake & Rock. **Photos will be posted in the YC pages soon.
This is (Jerry) Jeremy Clark
Who has been very generous in using his place on the London Marathon in April to raise funds for the PDCS!!
Jerry works at Eggbuckland Vale Primary School and knows several of our members, which has prompted him to choose the PDCS as his nominated charity.
Please let all your friends and family know about Jerry's challenge and get them to share his Virgin Money Giving page and donate directly.
* Remind them that every penny goes towards providing activities for the deaf children, there are no wage earners or admin fees involved when you choose to donate to us.
