Box of delights

11th June 2004 at 01:00
Members of a virtual staffroom win this week's Waitrose hamper. Ginny Dorrington of West Yorkshire is one of 23 e-learning facilitators who work for the National College of School Leadership.

"We're all based in different parts of the country - from Northumberland to Devon - and only get together properly four times a year," she says.

"Despite that, we have a fantastic 'virtual' presence. We socialise, work and share knowledge online every day, which means everyone is valued and cared for."

The team meets again early next month. This time they'll have a box of goodies as well as gossip to share.

The hamper contains a refreshing lemon drink, home-made jams and lemon curd, mouth-watering chocolates and crunchy biscuits. It usually costs pound;46 and is available exclusively from Waitrose Direct Gifts, at, which delivers to any mainland UK address. For a chance to win one, just tell us why you and your colleagues deserve it. Send your message, marked Waitrose offer, by email or postcard to the address on the right.
