Computerpals is a totally volunteer run organisation.
We are always looking for anyone who would like to join us as a volunteer mentor who is willing to sit with and help others learn about their devices or guide them in BeConnected classes. It’s not a hard job and it is very rewarding in self satisfaction and feeling of worth.

Our long-time Treasurer – Grahame King, has advised us that he is moving to the Central Coast soon and sadly will have to leave us. We will miss him. He has done a fantastic job.

We need to find a new Treasurer – someone who has bookkeeping experience and willing to learn how our system works. Please don’t stand back and wait for ‘someone else’ to do it. If you would like to have a go or would like more information please contact me by email –

MORNING TEA – MONDAY 27/3 at Club Lambton (51 Karoola Rd Lambton next to the Lambton pool) starting at 10:00 am. Click Here for more information.
Everyone is invited – come and enjoy (no charge)
