Erasmus – EU Work Experience

Erasmus is an EU program enabling students in European colleges to gain cultural & work experience in other EU countries for varying periods or weeks to months.

Asbastos feb 2020Computers for Charities has been privilged to participate for many years. Sadly prior to Brexit French & German colleges decided to seek other countries and partners.

But praise remains for the Spanish and Asbastos College in Valencia as the program continues for another two years.

In March we welcome more students from Valencia and trust others will also wish to seek such a golden opportunity. Plus for us, a day in the Sunshine is always welcome. Thank you Asbastos

Happy New Year 2020

Happy New Year to you all. A late update on our Shoebox appeal. Again many thanks for all the support.
Sadly 2019 was the last year for our Sprinter Van to make such journeys. 4000 miles this time around. So a newer replacement is now needed.
But again amazing the reception in all the countries visited. Children and Adults in many places from schools to hospitals have benefitted from such generosity,

Well done from us all at Computers for Charities and futher afield… Plus Congratulations to my Dad & Mum. Wedded 65 years today!
