Andy Gilbert is a Digital Champion from Lloyds Banking Group who has had the opportunity to use his digital know-how to support his local community, thanks to a partnership between Good Things Foundation and Lloyds Banking Group.
The partnership has seen the charity and the bank combining knowledge to develop an in-house course for Lloyds staff to develop their skills as Digital Champions and has then provided them with opportunities to volunteer in local Online Centres up and down the country.
Resource and planning manager Andy found a volunteering opportunity at the IT Junction in Worthing and got in touch with the team there to see if he could be of assistance.
“I chose Worthing IT Junction because I wanted to use my skills to help the local community. I’ve lived in Worthing practically all my life, so I really care about the area.
“I’ve spent a lot of time with learners but one of the most important things has been inspiring them and giving them the confidence to go online and discover the huge amount of information that’s out there.
