SCLTPublic Presentation Team Increases Capacity
The highly successful Public Presentation Team (PPT) division of the award-winning Senior Citizen Liaison Team (SCLT) has recently benefited from a number of financial grants and donations from the Somerset area, which has allowed the small charity to fully equip it's newest volunteer with all the latest presentation equipmnt that he needs to take the senior safety message to the wider older adult community in Somerset (UK).
Matt Hawker joined the SCLT as a volunteer presenter with the SCLT Public Presentation Team earlier in the year. Following a mentored period, where he shadowed a more experienced presenter as they travelled around the South West region giving presentations to social and community groups, Matt was ready to start giving presentations himself, but was hinderd due to a lack of equipment.
Thanks to generous grants from such groups as Somerset Foundation and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Charity, the SCLT have been able to provide Matt with a laptop, projector and all the ancillary gear that he has needed to get out in the community to spead the safety message.
Matt said, "It had been something of a juggling act to borrow equipment from other presenters to meet all our growing committments. Now, I have all the tools that I need to visit groups and give them an educational and entertaining presentation on the dangers of deception crime, as well as our after-dinner/event presentations which have been specially designed for groups like Rotary, Probus, etc, who prefer the more engaging format of talk, rather than our standard senior safety demonstration"
