Good People exist!

One of the joys and priviliges of running a charity is the people you encounter and the places visited.

Even more so with our Shoebox appeal. Which takes you all over the UK and often off track, as here in North Devon with the great people of Brayford and neighbouring villages.

These people have been supporters for many years. And always a great welcome. Brayford is 

blessed by Jonathan & Madeleine Brownell from the great USA, encouragers and motivators in the community. Well done and thank you for all….

Toyota! Not Just Cars

Think of the name Toyota and your thought may well be Cars. Toyota do much more to which Computers for Charities is grateful to Toyota Industries and Midac Batteries.

It was some years ago that Toyota Industries responded to a simple enquiry not with an answer but donated an Electric Pallet Lifter and has aided the charities work immeasurably. Once again, Toyota Industries and Midac Batteries have come up trumps with a new battery pack for the lifter.

Simon Rooksby Says: Now as back then, there was no way we could have afforded such a piece of equipment, which has revolutionised our operation with the handling and moving of donated equipment, let alone other activities as with container loading and so forth. Whilst also ensuring the safety for the Volunteers that make it all happen with a charity of this type.

Corporate sponsorship remains invaluable and vital for the survival of our charities and voluntary organisations

Computers for Charities has supported the community and environment since 1994. Turning the tide on waste and landfill usage, thousands of tonnes of toxic waste have effectively been reused or recycled suitably.

Plastic waste remains an ongoing and global issue, causing great concern to CfC in respect of electrical waste across the UK. To aid this, CfC is seeking a plastic granulator to provide more effective recycling services to Eastbourne and Wealden

Knitting Sensation

Certainly Computers for Charities is not just about Computers. It’s all about people and helping in different ways. Our Christmas shoebox appeal is one such thing, and there is still time to get them in. But also there is much more… Hence it is a big well done to local knitting group Hailsham Knit & Natter… Not just at Christmas but throughout the year this group that meets at Maryan Court, Hailsham. Monday 2 – 4pm produces literally vanloads of knitted items to help the less fortunate. Hot water bottle covers for the homeless, Blankets, Children Clothing.. They are just miraculous.

And just this week we have collected a Van load of goodies to be passed onto needy people. Thank you and well done. Oh by the way… It is not just for the ladies, yes men are welcome too. Double Knit and Chunky wool supplies are needed. Got any spare, please send it in… Well done and thank you.
