Helping the UK Get Connected: EE launch Techy Tea Party Day with Age UK


 EE has partnered with Age UK to launch EE National Techy Tea Party Day which will take place on Tuesday 9th September. Over 500 EE stores will host events from 9.30am-11.00am to help build people’s confidence with everything from using tablets to social media, apps and keeping in touch through Skype.

Everyone who comes will get to spend time with a member of their team who’ll answer questions and help to build confidence with today’s technology. Guests can also bring any of their own phones, laptops, tablets or equipment that they’d like to learn more about them. EE will bring the tea and biscuits!

Guests can sign up by visiting an EE store or online at

Age UK ambassador June Whitfield CBE supported the launch by hosting a special Techy Tea Party at the Age UK East London Computer Centre in Hackney. June discussed the benefits of being connected for older people over tea and biscuits. Watch the video from the event here.

June said: “I believe that we should all be given the chance to learn basic digital skills. There are endless opportunities online and I would encourage everyone, no matter what their age, to embrace it. One of the great advantages is being able to keep in contact with family members and friends no matter where they are. Anyone who has yet to get online should certainly give it a try, and National Techy Tea Party Day is a chance to get started.”

If you find technology a bit baffling, or know someone who does, you can sign up by visiting an EE store or online here.
