Kick Start Notebook Donation

Darren Tipple of the Cash Factory in Norwich Street, Fakenham, recently donated Kick Start Fakenham with a Dell netbook pc. His generous donation came after Kick Start Fakenham discussed with Fabcom, the idea of having a presentation of the group using modern technology. Fabcom’s Steve Hall made enquires and Darren offered his services. Kick Start are now working on a powerpoint presentation with the view to showing it at events the group attends and also possibly giving talks to other groups and the schools.

Next Kick Start Fakenham meeting is on 19th June, at Fakenham Community Centre at 7pm in meeting room 2.
