Digital help for elderly

Residents in the Eastwood and Kimberley area are being urged to make sure older and disabled people are prepared for the forthcoming digital switchover.

Help Scheme is urging residents to lend a Helping Hand by thinking of someone they know who might need help switching to digital.

The appeal comes as part of the Help Scheme’s ‘Helping Hand’ campaign to make sure every person in the area knows about the help they can get to convert one of their TV sets to digital.

The transmitter serving Eastwood and Kimberley will begin to switch to digital on August 17.
