Now that I'm a man of leisure I decided to increase my volunteering. I'm helping adults get a grip with computing. Two one hour sessions at the local Community Centre with up to four people in each session. Had the first sessions today and they went very well. Booked up until Christmas at least and maybe into next year.

That's good news Cappy!

There's plenty of seniors out there that need help with basic computing.

Thanks guys, it's a completely new experience for me. The 'students' are elderly or the recently retired who want to master this new, and now essential, technology. Requires a lot of patience.
The Community Centre were donated 4 refurbished Laptops and myself and one other are volunteering our time. Students pay £2 per session to cover basics (tea, coffee and biscuits). They can come along for as many sessions as they feel they need.
We're teaching the basics such as using word and excel. Also emailing and Internet access plus anything they want to specifically ask for.

Good for you! Sounds like a very worthwhile use of your spare time!
Just make sure all your students know how to access the AMMO website! lol!

Brian,

Don't forget to ask them if their kids left any Action Men in the loft when they left home.

You may have discovered an untapped source of VAM!
