VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO HELP RAISE AWARENESS OF DIGITAL SWITCH:
West Limerick Resources is now seeking volunteers to help raise awareness of the switch to digital television which take place on October 24th. Help is needed to identify older people living alone, those with literacy and other learning difficulties and those with few social networks who may to be aware of the change or who may need basic information on how to make the switch. The Community Outreach Digital Switchover Programme is heavily reliant on the Irish tradition of caring for our neighbours and we are asking communities to look around and help identify those locally who will need a little assistance and make sure that they get it.
