Forty members of TNMOC Club enjoyed a Gourmet barbecue at TNMOC this month. Third Light Ltd, whose staff are members of the club, sponsored the event, kindly providing all the food and drinks. Members were invited to make a donation and the club was delighted to be able to raise over £1000 for the museum including Gift Aid.
TNMOC Club was formed in March 2015 and has regular members' only events including two open days each year and social events such as the barbecue. As well as raising much needed funds for the museum, the club aims to bring together people who have an interest in the history of computing. Members are entitled to free admission to the museum and receive a quarterly newsletter packed with interesting and often thought-provoking articles. The club has very close ties with the museum and members are regularly involved in museum activities alongside the volunteers.
Michael Wells, Managing Director of Third Light Ltd said: "Third Light is delighted that the members' barbecue was such a success. We enjoyed meeting members and volunteers alike, and hope that the Museum will continue to benefit from the heartfelt support that we saw on the day. It was especially pleasing to have guests who had never been to TNMOC before comment on how engaging the exhibits are, and how much they look forward to returning again."
John Linford, TNMOC Club Chairman, said: "This was the club's first social event since its formation in March. We were very pleased with the turnout and especially with the amount of money we were able to raise for TNMOC. We are particularly indebted to Third Light Ltd for their kind sponsorship support and excellent culinary skills. The club is keen to expand its membership and invites anyone who uses computers or whose career has depended on the computer revolution to consider supporting the museum by joining the TNMOC Club."
