Irish speakers needed for TV programme
Fancy being part of a TV programme? Below the Radar is a TV production company in Belfast. They are currently producing the 6th series of our popular magazine programme, I Lár an Aonaigh, which will air on BBC2 NI later this year.
Their programmes focus on the issue of mobility and accessibility. For the third element of the programme they would love to speak to a long cane user or a guide dog user on their day to day experience in a built environment. The programme is as Gaeilge, so they specifically need Irish speakers.
If you are interested in taking part you can contact Victoria Hamilton on +442890315522/ firstname.lastname@example.org
News from the Iona Centre
An Update from the computer room
In the last 3 months over 40 Iona service users and community employment employees took part in the digital skills grant scheme which is funded by the department of communications climate action and environment.
The idea of this course is to help people to move online and enjoy all the internet offers. All participants really enjoyed this course and most of them used Apple devices such as iPads which were provided especially for this project. Social networking and Facetime were among the subjects people found the most beneficial.
The Iona Centre has had a very busy summer which included many recreational and educational outings. The highlights included a trip with our seniors group to Airfield Estate farm where they had a guided tour and learned about the lives of the Overend sisters, the day was finished off with a lovely lunch.
A trip was made to Summerhill House in Enniskerry where everyone enjoyed Afternoon tea. Another great outing was to the Kilbeggan distillery experience, which everyone complemented as a very sensory tour.
