[ubuntu-uk] Starting an IT workshop

I have just been to a local neighbourhood community [0] meeting and
thought ann IT workshop would help out. The group already does workshops
relating to gardening, bicycle maintenance and such. 

My question is: how do I propose it in your experience? 
What I have for the moment is an old laptop, 
I would like to order a bunch ubuntu CDs if I can to hand out
I know my way around computers but I'm not a professional but I think I
have a lot of patience explaining IT stuff to children and adults.
I like talking to people about using libreoffice instead of MS office,
ubuntu instead of windows,...
The community can offer an enclosed place "The little House" or the
library. Both can take about 10 people. 

Would it be best to start with something simple? or look alliance with
some other community that already exists and are looking for a place to
do some sort of mini workshop. This is what they did with the bicycle

So I was asked to source some info to take back to the meeting for next
month. Can someone point me in the right direction?
