Sheffield residents are invited to ‘Let’s Get Healthy, Wealthy and Wise’, a free city centre event to show how much fun getting online can be.
The event, on Friday 16 October from 10am-2pm at the Moor Market, is open to everyone, from complete beginners to those looking to boost their skills.
As well as gaining lots of advice and information on how to use a tablet, iPad, or laptop computer, people will also be provided with tips on keeping their digital device secure. They will also be shown how to manage money, trace their family tree and get a health check online.
Two tablets will be up for grabs in a free prize draw. To enter, people simply need to come down and visit the event which is being organised by Sheffield City Council, Heeley Development Trust and partners.
Maxine Bowler, Learning Manager at Heeley Development Trust who co-ordinates the Sheffield Online Project said:
