H3 Charity gets online
As a result of a successful bid by H3 the charity has been successful in obtaining funding from the Tenant Futures Small Grants Programme at Trafford Hall. This success has allowed H3 to purchase two brand new HP Notebooks equipped with Wi-Fi access.
The Notebooks have been used to produce the charity’s website which, as well as developing the committee members new skills will showcase the great work which H3 are doing in Stockport for local people, such as the distribution of quality surplus food (Fairshare) to people who are homeless and living in temporary accommodation.
The charity can now dedicate more time to the website;
- Ensuring that the content is both up-to-date and appealing
- Allowing visitors to find the website with ease
- Informing visitors of the positive work that the charity is involved in locally
- Encourage visitors to make donations of any amount(s) to the charity
- Develop a web presence through Facebook and Twitter
Chrissie Ince, ex-homeless resident and now Chair of the charity said, “We couldn’t have done this without the training on building our own web page delivered by Trafford Hall and the funding for the notepads, it will make a massive difference to H3. This means that we will be able to promote the work of the charity more widely and work towards raising more funds to deliver more of our innovative projects to help people who are homeless in Stockport.”
