Vita Group has donated over 90 laptops to Stockport charity, Community Computers which gives old tech a second lease of life with people across Stockport who wouldn’t otherwise have access.
Community Computers work with the long-term unemployed, community groups and people across Stockport who have I.T. needs but perhaps can’t afford to invest in their own tech-infrastructure.
Along with the social impact the computers will go on to have in the community, Community Computers’ work extends the life of the machines and saving them from being scrapped for parts.
In total over 200KG of tech have been diverted from refuge centres and instead put into the hands of those who need them most in the town.
Adrian Brooker, Infrastructure Team Leader at Vita Group said: “We’re delighted to support Community Computers, helping to get valuable technology into the hands of the people who need it the most. Whilst the tech might not still meet the requirements of the business, these machines still have plenty of life left in them and are perfect for people to practice their computer skills on and connect to family and friends.”
