NEWSLETTER – MARCH 2022 – Emergency Contacts

Between COVID and the more recent flooding, it’s certainly been a trying time for anyone living in SE Queensland and Northern NSW.  We all know someone who has been impacted by either (or both) of these events and send our strength and best wishes to them all.  Basic Tech Founder, Claire Robinson and her family spent the weekend down in Condong assisting flood victims and the clean up crew by providing healthy packed lunches and refreshments (including beers which went down a treat).  It was truly heartbreaking to see the impact these floods had on so many families however it was also heartwarming to see the number of volunteers who had come to assist those in need.

Now that COVID has settled down, we have finally been able to run our FREE seniors tech classes once more.   These weekly classes take place at The Rocket in Robina every Monday from 2pm – 3:30pm and are held in the gorgeous offices of OnPlatinum ICT on level 12.  All learners should register their interest via  Here is a short snippet from our very first class:

Did you know that 13.6% of our population lives below the poverty line?  Can you imagine your life without a mobile phone?

At the beginning of the year, Basic Tech partnered with Oppo to give back to the community.  Oppo donated phones and sim cards with prepaid plans whilst Basic Tech donated over 20 hours of time to assisting seniors one on one around the Gold Coast who were doing it tough.

Margaret’s favourite pastime was playing Bridge with friends until Covid restrictions accompanied by her partner’s ill health put a stop to that.  Basic Tech set up an affordable HP Chromebook for Margaret and connected her with an online bridge playing club which she joins on a weekly basis 🎉 The joy on Margaret’s face after she entered the virtual bridge lobby for the first time and took a seat at the virtual table, was priceless.
