“It has been one of the most rewarding campaigns we have been involved in.”
“I have never used a computer before and now I have an email account and can shop online. I am so delighted I came.”
For Spring Online 2013 (22 - 26 April) an estimated 20,000 older people and other less confident users were helped to use digital technology at hundreds of free taster events across the UK.
From village halls to community centres, schools and colleges to Age UK branches and housing providers, the range of venues was as diverse as ever. There were even events held in a cinema, a pub and a candle shop.

Now the really hard task has begun as our independent panel of judges try to decide which of our many, many amazing event holders are worthy of winning the Spring Online 2013 Best Event Awards which will be presented by Baroness Joan Bakewell.
