Internet club wins an award

Published: May 18th, 2015 | Author: Laura Simpson

When faced with new technology, sometimes a little help is all you need to open up a world of new opportunities. Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Citizens Online are working together to help people get the skills they need to make the most from the internet.

In Nairn, members of the BIG Club, that helps local residents to get online, were thrilled to hear that they had won an award. The clubBrigitte award was named Best New Project by Generations Working Together (GWT). The club is supported by Saltire Awards students from Nairn Academy who help local learners to get online and encourage intergenerational working.

The awards ceremony took place at the GWT Conference in Inverness on 29th April. The Award was presented to Mr Jack McCall, who is a long-standing volunteer at Fort George Museum, where he had sessions from the project to learn how to use his new iPad.

The award was also accepted on behalf of the BIG club by Eve Hamilton and Elizabeth Reid, S4 students at Nairn Academy. Unfortunately many of the Saltire students had revision and exam commitments on that day so sadly were not able to attend the ceremony. We wish all the students every success with their forthcoming exams.
