Regular as clockwork, Andy arrives at the office on his way to work. He gives us an hour and a half each week, updating our Facebook page.
Before Andy arrived, it would be weeks before a new updates, but in the last six months its popularity has risen by 56%. He selects one or two national stories to share, adding a bit of introductory text.
Andy checks the weekly donations to see if there is any parishes or schools that we can be thanking on Facebook. When we have a picture, for example of a parish volunteer, he will add that, cropping it to make it better to see. When we don’t have a picture of the activity or those involved, he will choose a relevant image. Andy uses CAFOD’s photos from our work and adds some thing about how a donation is making a difference.
He has joined in and promoted the Facebook competition for Delia Smith’s cookbooks. He is always eager to do more, giving more time when he can and offering to help with any local events. He keeps encouraging other people, singing their praises on Facebook for us.
