As we have missed a few dates due to lock down, this Saturday we will be offering residents the choice of areas to litter pick.
Below is an article on IT Schools Africa who we met at a business event earlier on in the year. They are an UK registered charity with a mission to transform IT education in Africa, they collect old computers, refurbish, upgrade and distribute them to schools in Africa.
Their programme benefits communities in the UK by:
- Supporting computer refurbishment workshops in five prisons.
- Helping the unemployed gain practical skills and confidence to re-enter the labour market
- Providing work experience for school children, university students and people with learning difficulties.
They are looking for:
- Computers (up to 6 years old)
- Flat screen monitors
- iPads / tablets
- Laptops (with power adapters)
- Smart mobile phones
- Digital projectors, keyboards, cables
- Hard drives, RAM and mice
- Unused printer cartridges
- Black and White printers
- CD and DVD drives
Any help that can be offered will be gratefully appreciated and if you would you like to volunteer for them then please see the contact details below:
