Plusnet Business has donated a broadband connection to Lester Drive Community Centre, in Eccleston, St Helens.

The broadband provider installed a fixed-line service in order to help people who use the facility to get to grips with the internet.

According to Go On UK, 16 per cent of people aged 15 and over in the UK still do not have even basic digital skills.

And many have never even used the internet - meaning they risk potential exclusion from Britain's growing digital society.

Plusnet's Martyn Hudson said the firm donated the broadband connection in order to encourage older people living in St Helens to get online. 

"Lester Drive Community Centre puts on classes so that its users can learn how to complete day-to-day tasks using the web such as online banking, shopping and keeping in touch with family and friends," he explained.
