I’m on a bit of a roll with the Google certifications, and I was able to get in another couple of hours of study and pass my Google Ads Search Certification. The more I practise, the better I get, and I’m planning on putting together a training doc for my charities which focusses on the elements that they are able to use for free. I’m really enjoying this, and it’s keeping my brain very active!

What: Online Auction
Organisation: Dons Local Action Group

When I wasn't cramming my Google knowledge in, I was tallying up the Dons Local Action Group auction prizes to see who has what before I contact the winners of the lots. I don’t really want to contact people to say ‘yay, you’ve won! I don’t know where your prize is…’ so I’ve been doing a bit of detective work. Some of the lots are at the food hub, where they take in all their foodbank food and do the delivery logistics, and some lots are at home with trusted DLAGgers. There’s also quite a few prizes that are match tickets and experiences, so I need to get in touch with the team at AFC Wimbledon to organise these.

If I’m to do this again, I definitely think that I will be getting all of these details beforehand as it’s been a bit of a pain sourcing all the prizes retrospectively. I don’t want to keep the winning bidders waiting too long to hear back from us, as they’ve paid good money for some fantastic prizes. We’re almost up to £30k in from the auction, and as we haven’t had all the payments yet, so hopefully we’ll reach it by the time everyone has paid!
