Our letter of thanks from the Royal British Legion for our annual donation to them.
Dear Mr Mills,
Happy New Year to you!
I wanted to reach out and say thank you to you and your colleagues for the amazing donation you made at the end of 2018! It was great to see that our charity was supported alongside The Royal British Legions Poppy Appeal in commemoration of 100 years since the end of the First World War.
This donation will enable us to continue to support our members throughout their time with us, whether that is by providing them with tech to communicate with their families, equipment to aid their home life, activity days with fellow members as well as visits from our Community Support Workers and Rehabilitation staff.
Many thanks once again for your kindness and generosity.
Food always goes down well at Masteroast and the surrounding businesses.
We'd like to say a big thank you to all the surrounding businesses that dropped by again this year for a good chat and great coffee with a side order of cake, we've collectively raised £400 for Macmillan Cancer Support. A charity I'm sure that has had an effect on your life or someone you know.
Congratulations to Alicia Fieldhouse
Robotic coffee dance
Selfridges has a 109 year history and the department store has a pedigree for gaining technological firsts. The London department store in Oxford Street has played host to a number of new technologies from the Bleriot XI aeroplane, the first ever to cross the channel, as well as the first demonstration of a television set and many more. The machine they have in store now is a robot called YuMi and its main employment in this instance is to make a great cup of coffee. The complexity of making a good cup of coffee requires a great deal of precision, a skill that we have the fortune to take for granted every day, it's actually very difficult for a machine to master. The accuracy of YuMi is thanks to years of R&D and a plethora of sensors.
YuMi is proof that the tech path is still alive and well as the store is set to take in its first ever robot, Abb's YuMi duel-arm collaborative robot. YuMi stands for You and Me working together and it was introduced in 2015. It was originally designed to take on repetitive high accuracy tasks in a manufacturing role such as the handling of phones and watches.
