TechFest65 – Tackling Modern Technology for Over 65s
TechFest65, an event organised by Everycare Winchester, is coming to the Winchester Discovery Centre on Friday 13th October, to help the over 65s become more confident using modern technology. Fancy surprising the kids and grandchildren with new-found tech skills?
According to recent Age UK statistics, there are 6 million older people who have never even used the internet yet. Inspired by statistic like these, TechFest65 was conceived to help the over 65 population of Winchester get the most out of new technology. Hosted at the Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street on Friday 13th October at 10am, the free event gives attendees the opportunity to learn more about how to use smartphones, tablets, apps, social media and more. Attendees will also be able to participate in free demonstrations provided by Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse, whilst enjoying tea, coffee and cake.
The morning, which is totally free, will run from 10am – 12:30pm and is available to anyone over the age of 65. Everycare Winchester hope that attendees will learn how get more out of the technology available to them, helping them connect with friends and family, use the internet safely and feel more included in modern society.
We hope to see you there!
