Richard Branson's team of tech supporters, Virgin Digital Help, has offered 30 minutes of free tech help to anyone who wants it and doesn't have a handy relative who they can call up and ask instead.

While we're sure that our readers need no help whatsoever with their gadgets, you might fancy passing the offer on to your mum, uncle or anyone else in your family who frequently hassles you for technology advice. It consists of half an hour's "straight-forward, jargon-free" phone advice, with the offer of remote desktop support.

To sign up, head on over to before 31 March and grab a voucher, which you can then use at any time over the next 6 months. Branson himself stepped out of his hammock on his private island and said: "At Virgin we’re always looking at how we can make people's lives easier. With Virgin Digital Help, we are giving them access to the kind of expert tech support normally reserved for big businesses, at a fraction of the cost".
