The clocks go back later this month which means an extra hour for all of us! Instead of spending it in bed, why not put it to good use and help transform someone’s life by getting them online?
The Wildcats are supporting the ‘Go ON Give an Hour’ campaign that is running across the country from October 22nd – November 12th asking the 30 million people who use the internet every day to transform someone’s life by getting them online.
Join the Wildcats Community Team at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium for drop-in sessions where you can find out just why the internet is a big part of millions of people’s lives across the globe.
Between Monday 31st October and Friday 4th November, people can visit the Learning Zone located on the second floor of the Wildcats offices between 10am and 1pm, or 5pm and 6pm to get some hands on experience with all the internet has to offer.
New Wildcats forward Oliver Wilkes visited the Rapid Solicitors Stadium to show his support for the campaign alongside two of the Wildcats volunteer working party who were getting their first taste of the world wide web.
“It’s a great initiative and I’d encourage every single person to get someone they know to visit the Wildcats and give them their first taste of surfing the internet,” said Wilkes.
“Getting online is great for everything from doing shopping to learning all sorts of new things.
“Instead of wasting the extra hour we all get when the clocks go back, hopefully lots of people will put it to good use and help someone get online for the first time.”
Wildcats Director of Education, Mark Winder added: “This is only the start of online learning sessions at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium.
“The sessions to improve people’s access to using computers and confidence in doing so will continue into the spring and as well as being fun relaxed, I am sure we can show people how the Internet can be interesting and save people money.”
The sessions are available to everyone and are free, but for every person we put through we get money for the Wakefield Wildcats Community Trust from the government. The money is then reinvested into improving opportunities for people in Wakefield.
The Wildcats Learning Zone will be open on the following dates for people to drop-in and get online so make suer you let people know the times and dates:
Monday 31st October: 10am-1pm and 5pm-6pm
Tuesday 1st November: 10am-1pm and 5pm-6pm
