The former Jumper store has been stocked with clothes, bric-a-brac and other salable goods for a number of weeks now but the new Age Concern outlet offers much more than just charity items.
Age Concern East Cheshire has been focusing on I.T learning since 2003 and the New Horizons centre in Macclesfield that has experienced strong uptake and over the past six years with remarkable grown in popularity.
The Knutsford store now features a brand new computer suite designed to support and educate the towns senior citizens. It is to be the proudest feature of the centre with classes and support on offer to all eager learners in the locality.
A primary aim of these I.T suites, is to take the fear out of computing by demonstrate email usage, internet accessibility, simple word processing skills and getting pictures onto a computer through a gentler learning experience.
