Silver Surfers' Day 20 May 2012
Silver Surfers 2012 May McFetridge.jpg The over-50’s were invited to get to grips with technology and surf the internet with free training at a local library on Friday 18th May for Silver Surfers’ Day.  BITC Cares.jpg





Hundreds of volunteers in libraries across Northern Ireland delivered fun taster sessions on the internet, e-mail, online banking, shopping and much much more. The event, now in its nineth year, is supported by the Department of Finance and Personnel. Hilary Hanberry, the event’s Programme Manager at Business in the Community, urges anyone interested to register with their local library. She said: “Hundreds of Silver Surfers book their sessions. Silver Surfers’ Day always catches the imagination of the over-50’s and we’re delighted that so many local companies have become involved this year to provide volunteers.” Internet made easy.jpg

Basil Davidson, Digital Inclusion Manager, Department of Finance and Personnel adds: “The Department is delighted to continue to support Silver Surfers’. Digital Inclusion is a top priority for government and it is important that access to online resources is made available through ‘nidirect’ for all generations. At the Silver Surfer sessions, individuals will find out how easy it is to get online, send an email and discover how to do things such as booking an MOT or even applying for a passport through ‘nidirect’. Ultimately, it’s about helping them to save time and save money.”

Libraries across the province hosted Silver Surfers’ sessions on Friday 18th, as well as over 50 library branches and other locations across Northern Ireland. To book a Silver Surfers’ session contact your local library.
