It's day three of our week-long special, looking at the valuable work that volunteers do.
In this episode we sent Gloria Hunniford to a Click Silver group in Nottingham, funded by Capital one. It matches young computer-savvy students from Nottingham Trent University with wannabe silver surfers / senior citizens to teach them basic computer skills.
Gloria, herself a late starter - she still doesn't use email - chatted to the mentors and silver surfers about what they've learned. She also found out, how in addition to funding it, Capital One provided volunteers from their anti-fraud department to show the silver surfers how to surf the net safely

Business in the Community is a business-led charity focused on promoting responsible business
practice. We have a growing membership of over 850 companies and a further 10,700 companies engaged in our campaigns globally.
Our members help to transform communities by tackling key social and environmental issues and in doing so, transform themselves. One of the easiest and most effective ways for a business to make a sustained positive impact in a local area is to support staff to volunteer their time, skills and expertise to local projects making a difference. We connect volunteers from businesses with projects around the country all year round - focusing on areas with the greatest need.
