MACS Virtual Events

MACS Virtual Meet Ups

Join us for virtual tea breaks, quiz nights and more!

The virtual events were first created to keep our members entertained and connected during the Covid pandemic. The events proved so popular that we are sticking with them for good! Please see below for the list of events available and sign up using the online registration forms. Our Regional Coordinator, Sharon will then send you a reminder and the joining details each time we have that event.

Would you like to host an event?

We like to give our members the opportunity to host these meetings to share their interests, offer a challenge and gain confidence. If you have any ideas for a meeting or would like to host one please do get in touch.

If you have any ideas for an event or you would like to iron out any technology or joining issues before any of our zoom meetings please let me know on sharon@macs.org.uk or 07395 280 764. We can arrange a time that will fit in with your day.

Our events are free

The Zoom meetings are free and there for you to meet and keep in touch with others who are in a similar situation, with similar experiences and are a very supportive space. Don't worry if you sign up and can't make the meeting but if you do register for any of the meetings, Sharon will send you a reminder with details each time we hold that meeting for when you can make it.

Live captions are now available at all of our events.

Before joining

Please ensure that you have the correct name on your ID as you join zoom and if you are joining late please let Sharon know.

By joining our Zoom meetings you are giving permission to MACS to capture your image and understand that MACS may use these images in our promotional material and that you give your consent for this. If you do not want to appear on camera you can still join in by turning your camera off.

These events have been an absolute lifesaver. They have saved me from feeling isolated during some very dark times during lockdown. Thank you so much for keeping us together as a community
