mySense - the annual event

The theme was Friendship – and how these are amongst the most valuable relationships we have. The programme reflected this by running workshops on getting online to experience a wider community, setting up a worldwide family network, and looking at how Sense’s groups and communities can do more.

Information stalls, including one that focused on our 60:60 Vision campaign, were at the forefront of the socialising on the day. An always busy pop-up charity shop was joined this year by Café 55 selling jams and Christmas cakes, representing the Trading arms of Sense services. As well as external sponsor, HumanWare presenting some of their technology.

The social celebrated Sense’s 60th birthday, with cupcake decorating and boogi-ing to the jukebox going on well into the evening!

It was a hugely valued event overall and we’d like to thank our members for attending!
