We recently donated several desktop computers including monitors to Sheldon School in Chippenham. The IT equipment, which is all in extremely good condition, was purchased by both companies over the course of several years of continuing growth and had become obsolete earlier this year as a result of the pandemic, leading staff members to adopt laptops instead so that they could work from home more regularly.
Chief Operating Officer of both companies, Natalie Pike, said “Due to the recent national lockdown, we moved all of our staff to home working and from using desktop to laptop computers, so we had some spare. The desktop computers as well as monitors ended up just sitting on our IT Technician’s desk in the office doing nothing. One of our members of staff has a child at Sheldon School and had mentioned that some of the students struggled to work at home during the recent lockdown as they didn’t have access to computers, so we thought this could be a brilliant opportunity to support children in our local community and pass these on to the School. We really hope that these students will benefit from using them, particularly if schools in England are forced to close again in the event of further lockdowns”.
Sheldon School Headteacher, Neil Spurdell was delighted to accept the donation from the company and we were equally chuffed to help children at the school by supporting their education during a particularly challenging time for the country.
