They are running ‘Technology help’ sessions for over 65s on Tuesday mornings at Ballina Hockey Club, in Bentinck Street, Ballina.

A volunteer will work one-on-one for 25 minutes to help people understand and better use their devices such as mobile phones, tablets and laptops.

These sessions are free of charge, but Ballina Shire Meals on Wheels would appreciate any donations for the service provided.

Bookings are essential.

To make a booking or for further information please contact Program Development and Activity Officer Kristen Forster on 0419 679 719.

Ballina Shire Meals on Wheels follow COVID safe practices. While the local area is currently free of the virus, they want people to know they are able to respond quickly should the need arise, including notifying participants of the need to cancel sessions, to ensure the safety of participants.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
