Keeping senior citizens connected with the modern world will be a little easier for the team at Senior Net Warkworth with the addition of a new Apple MacBook Pro.

The team of SeniorNet tutors run a comprehensive series of courses out of their classroom underneath Warkworth RSA, making sure the local senior population is kept up to speed with modern technology.

The classroom is filled with a range of computers and operating systems, and can now add the Apple MacBook Pro to its resources thanks to a donation by Harcourts Tandem Realty Ltd through the Harcourts Foundation.

Vice chairman Neville Fursdon says the addition of the MacBook will ensure Senior Net tutors can cater to all users, no matter what operating system they’re used to, and they can learn using the new, relevant technology.

“We’re really grateful for the support we’ve received from the Harcourts Foundation. It really makes a difference to the level of service we’re able to offer the people who sign up for our courses.”

Harcourts Tandem Realty Ltd director Nick Langdon says SeniorNet provides really valuable services to local residents and it’s extremely satisfying to be able to help them.

“I’m really impressed by the number of courses SeniorNet offers and how many people they’re helping out in the community.

Harcourts Warkworth sales consultant Avalon Sanders says: “These days every aspect of our lives involves some aspect of computer skills and the team at SeniorNet are making sure nobody gets left behind.”

Jodene Mildon, another Harcourts Warkworth sales consultant, says: “It’s a pleasure to be able to contribute to a group in our local community that’s really helping people out with practical skills.”

Harcourts Foundation Ambassador Emma Revell says no matter what the cause, the Harcourts Foundation provides support to hundreds of organisations, enriching the lives of thousands of people in our communities.
