Allstate Supports NI's Silver Surfers

On Friday 26th April 650 silver surfers visited 54 libraries across Northern Ireland to attended free Silver Surfer digital inclusion sessions organised by Business in the Community for those above 50 who wished to learn more about the World Wide Web.

29 Allstate NI volunteers ventured out to their local libraries and provided hands on advice and demonstrations on everything from sending an email to setting up a Facebook account or even learning how to use online shopping and banking.

"We are delighted by the commitment of our business volunteers who make Silver Surfers' Day a priority in their business calendar each year," explains Hilary Hanberry, Volunteering Manager, Business in the Community. "The importance of digital inclusion cannot be underestimated. Being able to find, research and buy items online is becoming increasingly important. Silver Surfers' Day aims to help those with the potential to be digitally excluded to have the support they need. We are delighted with the commitment, enthusiasm and energy our business volunteers bring to Silver Surfers' Day year on year."

A massive thank you to all the Allstate NI volunteers who took part in this great day out!
