DIY SOS

Last Friday was definitely the best day at work for a while: I wasn’t in the office, or anywhere near a computer!

Last year IBM celebrated it’s 100th anniversary with a celebration of service, and this year they donated 1000 hours to the Jubilee Hour book of service. Twelve of us spent a few of those hours volunteering for the Society of St James on a DIY SOS day:

Fortunately they seemed pleased with our painting skills and we managed to paint the communal corridors in one of their units of self contained flats. It’s amazing how much you can get painted in a day with that many people. Unfortunately, while there was time to start on the fences outside, I wasn’t able to con anyone in to coming home and finishing off my house!!

Thanks to Matthew Comer for organising the day and the photographic evidence.
