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:

Picnic in the Park

Picnic_in_the_Park_0

Based on the success of our May Bank Holiday Fun day in the Moors, we’d like you to join us for a picnic in the park. Take part with a stall, have fun and have your say, there are a lot of exciting new opportunities we can’t wait to share with you!

There will be a bouncy castle, soft play, mask making, face painting, along with stalls from our 'Tenner Challenge' which include; beat the goalie, cake sale, tombola, guess the name of the teddy, number of sweets in a jar and weight of the cake. 

Finally there will be picnic mats with food and drink for you to enjoy whilst letting us know what you think of the area.

All of this for FREE!
