More equipment out in the wild!

It's been a pleasure this morning to gift a snazzy laptop to Wildwood Community Centre, to aid with their administrative duties.
Thank you again to everyone who's donated equipment to allow us to help so many good causes!

Two new stars are born!

We've had some lovely news from Starfish Health & Wellbeing, who we've gifted a pile of equipment to help their isolated clients get online to access remote counselling and support sessions. Starfish have let us know about two of their clients, Lee and Beatrice, who are now able to bridge the digital divide thanks to you lovely people!

Blossoming relationships!

We've teamed up with Sunflower Family Support Group at Faraday Road childrens' centre, providing the team there with kit to allow them to offer some new services in the coming few months!

A Sparkle In Our Eyes!

We've really enjoyed helping out Spark Childrens' Centre in Burntwood today, supplying and installing 2 desktop PC's, 3 laptops, and 3 Android tablet PC's for use in their clubs and activities, these will be enjoyed by both parents and children :)

We're Still Here!

Even when our news feed isn't very active, you can bet we are all busy bunnies behind the scenes. Quite often our recipients ask us not to publicise their details, which is perfectly fine, but we can still add those to our list of totals to update you all.
Today we visited a primary school in the ST17 area and gave away 6 tablet PC's which were donated by you lovely people.
This brings our numbers (in schools alone) to a total of 128 as follows:
 
-89 laptops / netbooks / macbooks
-7 desktops / all-in-ones
-32 tablets / ipads
 
Which are now in use (some respectfully wished to remain anonymous) at:
-St. Austins - 7 devices
-Greenhall Special School - 2 devices
-Berkswich CofE (Walton) - 9 devices
-St. Leonards (Dunston) - 13 devices
-All Saints (Ranton) - 11 devices
-Church Eaton CE- 14 devices
-St. Peters (Hixon) - 10 devices
-Burton Manor - 14 devices
-Doxey Primary - 9 devices
-Tillington Manor - 13 devices
-Anon 1 ST17 - 14 devices
-Anon 2 ST17 - 5 devices
-Anon 3 ST17 - 7 devices
 

Homing in on those in need!

We've joined forces with the employment coach team from Wolverhampton Homes, to gift a laptop which they can pass on to one of their isolated clients who desperately needs it.
This was donated by one of you lovely people, fixed up by our team of tech guys for free, and now it will start its new life bridging the digital divide.
Our Neil met up with employment coach Pippa at our postal HQ, to hand over our donation

Another huge milestone!

We did it!
Thanks to your kind donations of unwanted IT equipment, and your generous financial help towards our parts and running costs, not to mention the amazing work done by our team of volunteer technicians, we've now been able to give 200 internet ready devices back into the community where they are needed most, in less than 6 months since we formed!!
Thank you all so much for allowing us to tackle e-waste and digital poverty in this way which will help countless families!
This is just the beginning for Free IT!

Closing the divide!

With the addition today of another of our local primary schools, Free IT can now boast 113 internet ready devices placed across 11 schools, and making a total of 187 devices altogether which we've gifted where they are needed most in society.

These are all items donated by you lovely people and refurbished by our team of tech guys for free, using parts paid for by your very generous cash donations, and will now find their new lease of life tacking the digital divide.
Some will be used in the schools themselves, others may be given to deprived families known to the schools.
This is made up of:
-85 laptops / netbooks / macbooks
-7 desktops / all-in-ones
-21 tablets / ipads
Which are now in use (some respectfully wished to remain anonymous) at:
-Berkswich CofE (Walton) - 9 devices

And we're not stopping now!

Back at The Den, we did it again!

Yesterday we installed another 2 of your donated desktop PC's at The Den 101 in Rugeley. They can now be put to use with the 18 others we've provided in their youth centre computer room where local kids will be able to get online for free for schooling and recreation :)

Clicking Start!

Today we joined forces with the Citizens' Advice "Click Start" digital money management service.
Our Jack handed over one of your donated laptops to Theresa and Josh from Click Start, which can now be passed on to a family who CAB are supporting with their online interests and job seeking.
Thank you all so much for your kind donations which allow our project to continue and help countless families
