Towards the next milestone!

In the last month we've serviced and rehomed another 24 of your unwanted PC's, laptops, tablets, and Apple devices, taking our total so far to 524 :)

500!

In under 18 months we have now serviced and rehomed 500 of your unwanted PC's, laptops, and tablets!
Our delivery yesterday of a laptop to a housebound client of Cerebral Palsy Mid Staffs (CPMS) saw us smash this impressive milestone!
Thank you to everyone who's donated equipment and funds to help us along our way, to our tech volunteers and trustees for keeping the wheels turning, and finally to all of you lovely people for sharing our stories online and giving us such a huge exposure and reach!
We've created some vital community links and we'll continue to help even more great causes in our battle against e-waste and digital poverty 🙂

Nearing another milestone!

Since January 2021 we've refurbished and rehomed 494 of your...
- Laptops, netbooks and macbooks (263)
- Android tablets and iPads (70)
- iMacs, desktop PC's and all-in-one PC's (161)
For free!

A 'bug' in our system!

Huge thanks again to Midland VW, Volkswagen specialist in Cannock, who not only sponsored one of our biggest projects in our early days, but who have also now pledged to donate all of their unwanted I.T. equipment!

Rapidly getting closer!

With the addition of 6 units gifted to 2078 Boscobel Air Cadets today, we've now refurbished and handed over a total of 454 internet ready devices since we formed last January :)
And that's not counting the monitors, speaker sets, keyboards and mice that you lovely people have donated to turn bits and bobs into complete packages for those who desperately need them :)
We're quickly heading towards 500 :)

Back to school!

It's time for another thankyou...
They very kindly allowed us to dig through their surplus I.T. equipment before it's disposed, and we've taken away a pile of kit, some of which we've already rehomed, and some which you'll see popping up on our good news posts in the next few weeks 🙂

Thanks for thinking of us!

More huge thanks due, this time to 848 IT Services at Beaconside.
They thought of us before heading to the tip, and donated a 'sizeable' stack of their redundant equipment for us to refurbish and give away :)

A testing time!

To raise our project some extra cash we're now offering PAT testing at £3 per item.
We'll provide a full written certification plus the familiar green stickers.
Get in touch to learn more, or see the "PAT" section here on our website 🙂

It's not useless!

Do you have an old iPad that won't update any more, and will no longer run your favourite apps?
Don't take it to the tip, drop it in to us!
Some schools have the ability to re-use them, to install their own educational software, which is compatible with even the older versions of iOS and bypasses the need to ever update them.
We regularly rehome iPads that you've donated, which we've fixed up, reset, sanitised and PAT tested, to Greenhall School in Stafford 🙂
Please ensure if you donate, that you've unregistered your device from your "iCloud" and "Find My iPad", otherwise we're unable to erase your old data 🙂

No horsing around!

Massive respects to Vicki and the team at Online For Equine in Hixon, for thinking of us before they headed to the tip...
They've donated a huge stack of their redundant equipment which we'll now put through our secure erase procedure to ensure all of their remaining business data is destroyed, then we can pass it all on to those who desperately need it!
If you are a local business with unwanted I.T. gear please drop us a line, we can provide free sanitisation certificates to satisfy your GDPR policies on data disposal, and we'll re-home your old kit instead of profiting 🙂
