Marine in the Community, the charity arm of Marine Football Club, have embarked on a project to give Zoom training to elderly and shielding people across Crosby so they can keep in touch with their families and friends during lockdown.
The charity have been working throughout the pandemic to distribute food packages to shielding members of the community who are unable to go shopping, with familiar faces such as Jamie Carragher and David Fairclough getting involved.
The latest project will ensure twelve people receive free tech lessons including the provision of an electronic tablet for those who are not already able to access Zoom.
The news comes after Marine announced that fans donated over £53,000 to Marine in the Community via the virtual ticket scheme for the Emirates FA Cup Third Round match with Tottenham Hotspur.
Community Director, Graeme Gardiner, said: “Marine in the Community continue to support the local residents of Crosby and South Sefton by offering Zoom sessions to many of the people.”
“We have been offering training, laptops, and more importantly, opportunities to get involved with new activities.
“These include fitness classes, quizzes, chats and much more. We hope this will be a great success as we move on.”
Zoom sessions will be given by first-team player Mike Howard and Social Media Manager Tom Clarke.
Zoom Fit sessions will be held every Tuesday at 11am, with the weekly quizzes at 1pm every Thursday.
