My Mag... AUTUMN 2013
the magazine dedicated to helping people to work from home
From the Ed..... Welcome to August edition of My Mag and the beginning of the run up to Christmas What a fantastic response to our first Retford edition last month of ‘My Mag’. Business owners relieved that there is a less expensive option to advertising, the comments and responses have been better than we could of hoped for. With summer along the way started by the hottest weather in 7 years there is so much going on in your local communities there is plenty to do. If you need your event to be more explosive then call me today to get a FREE editorial to promote your event, we would love some photos afterwards to show our readers what fun has been had. The price of energy and the rising costs of fuel bills are always a hot topic, so take a look at an alternative energy supplier who actually pays you to be a customer by recommending family and friends whilst offering a double money back guarantee that they are the cheapest on their standard tariffs.
Solar panels clearly help reduce the electricity bill with the glorious weather we have had but Utility Warehouse offering solutions on all the household bills ! Enjoy the peace and quiet with the kids back at school, feet up, cup of coffee and enjoy this months magazine.

Retford Woman On A Mission
Retford resident Jo Baker has this launched an appeal for old laptops to be sent overseas to international development projects. CEO of Yorkshire-based charity International Service, Baker oversees human rights projects in West Africa, Latin America and the occupied Palestinian territory, and the delivery of an overseas volunteering programme for 18-25 year olds. She explained- “Computers have been a huge part of the work we’ve done, whether it be helping young people in the occupied Palestinian territory to express themselves through their own podcast, or enabling a disabled women’s cooperative to generate a sustainable income through selling their hand-crafted products online; we couldn’t have made as much global impact without computers”. International Service is appealing for anyone with working laptops that they’re no longer using to get in touch so that they can send them to the countries in which they’re needed most. In return, Baker has said that all donors will receive a photo of their laptop being

used by its new owners, with a story to explain the difference their gift will be making. Liam Conlon, who recently volunteered with International Service at a disability project in Burkina Faso said- “Living with disability in West Africa is made so difficult by the lack of information and understanding around diagnoses and conditions. However, I saw one school where the use of a laptop meant parents were able to research their child’s condition and so provide better support. “It not only transformed the life of the child, but empowered the whole family”. Anyone interested in donating an old laptop should go to www. internationalservice. org.uk or phone 01904 647799 for more information.
