IT Schools Africa Update......
We loaded the truck and need a second visit to clear all the IT equipment we collected!
A BIG, BIG thank you to all those who have donated unloved IT equipment to our IT Schools Africa project.
Today we shipped from Clitheroe to Cheltenham 150 computer towers, 40 laptops, 100+ flat screen monitors, data projectors, plus a mountain of printers, cables and keyboards. This is the second truck load from Clitheroe during the last few months.
International Chairman, Howard Blackburn, said he "was overwhelmed by the generosity of individuals, schools and companies from as far afield as Cumbria, Skipton, Longridge and other Rotary Clubs across Lancashire, who collected equipment on our behalf. And a special thanks to Julie Watson at Automation Clitheroe for providing storage"
Only last week IT Schools Africa shipped 500 computers from their Cheltenham depot to Zambia, making room for the Clitheroe delivery to be checked over and have all data removed from hard drives.
Our IT project continues, please drop off your unwanted equipment at Sowerbutts Furniture Store, King Street, Clitheroe. We suggest you use their rear entrance on the car park opposite the Ribble Valley BC Offices.
Thank you once again to those who have made donations and to those who still have to get around to having a spring IT clean!
Howard wouild also like to thank those Clitheroe Rotarians that have donated equipment and who helped to sort and load the truck.
