“Giving my old computer some TLC” by GTT Volunteer, Vicky.

“With the help of the GTT Lab, I took apart my old computer, retrieved valued photographs and restored it to health!

It had laid abandoned behind the sofa for years – an old desktop with an outdated edition of Windows, gathering dust.

I was helped to repair it myself, this included unscrewing the back, blowing out the dust and ensuring things were able to work. It was the first time I’d ever looked inside a computer and there was a lot of dust in mine! “

“Not only did I repair it, but I came away being able to identify the major parts inside and feeling like I’d learnt something. I truly believe that learning new things is so important for our wellbeing and confidence – at any age. I love the inclusive nature of GTT and their belief that anyone can learn with the right support.

My next mission is to update the operating system – with help of course.

Watch this space!! “
