One of our group admitted he has a problem with gambling. His close friend commented on how good it was to see him being near the amusements but not being tempted to go in. It seemed the group had helped him distract from his gambling behaviour, at least for a while, and helped him express his ideas and experiences creatively. This is what we aim to do in TBase and it was great to see it in action. During the discussion, when asked why homeless people gamble, the same
person had said "gambling gives people a bit of 'hope". We hope TBase can offer an alternative more positive and assured type of hope for all our members.
Two of our new members completed all the tasks for their EDCC certificates in digital photography. One member had never uploaded photos before or used photoshop. Another had not used an Apple Mac before and really enjoyed using the creative effects. Already looking forward to next week!
