Get Up and Go award 2013
On Tuesday 1st October 2013 ACE IT was awarded the Get Up and Go award for Innovation Openings – a business that is striving to open up new opportunities for older people. The award was presented at the launch of the latest Get up and Go guide which is aimed at people aged 50 years and over who live in Edinburgh. It lists activities and opportunities from exercise classes to specialist support groups.
It is the fifth year an award has been made to ACE IT with nominations coming from learners who have benefited from our computer training courses.
We would also like to congratulate our colleagues, Ageing Well, whose award was also picked up by Dianne, one of our ACE IT learners.
If you would like to obtain your own copy of this useful guide you can pick up a free copy from your local (Edinburgh wide) library, leisure centre, Council office or medical centre.
