Go On Sheffield

Sheffield United players Danny Bogdanovic and Elian Parrino along with Academy players added their support to the Go ON Sheffield challenge to encourage residents across the city to make use of computers and the internet.

First year Apprentices Callum McFadzean, Charlie Anderson and Elliott Whitehouse joined the first team players and were interviewed for a film which will be shown during the Go ON Sheffield Campaign.

Elliott Whitehouse says, “I use a computer for so many things. It helps us with our education as well as using it for finding out all sorts of information and I use it to contact friends. I help my dad use email.”

Charlie said: “I use it for keeping up to date with football.”

Callum added “I use Facebook for keeping in touch with friends.”

Around one in five people in Sheffield don’t use computers or the internet, and that means they could be missing out on all sorts of benefits, conveniences and even savings. Whether you’re looking for a bargain, a new job, new ways to keep in touch with family and friends or just a new hobby, computers and the internet could help.

Go ON Sheffield is part of a wider Go ON get more out of life online campaign from Sheffield-based organisation UK online centres.

At a national level, the campaign will see tens of thousands of people go into thousands of Go ON events. Sheffield though, is set to be the epicentre of all the activity. People can Go ON any time in January and February by visiting a local UK online centre.

Helen Milner, Managing Director of UK online centres, said: “We’re setting Sheffielders a double challenge this January, first of all to Go ON and see how they could get more out of life online, and second to lead the way for the entire country to do the same!”
