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.

Schools Shoebox Experience

Computers for Charities is opening it’s doors to Primary Schools and Youth groups over  to the weeks ahead to offer a hands on experience of the Christmas Shoebox appeal to young peopleSchools shoebox support.
 
Computers for Charities has been supporting, collecting and distributing the Christmas Shoebox since 1992.
 
The shoebox began as a response to provide encouragement and hope during the Bosnian conflict in 1990 and since has grown into an annual international phenomena.
 
Computers for Charities distributes to local projects assisting disadvantaged children and the elderly and further afield, including old folks homes, hospitals and orphanages in Eastern Europe.
 
Simon Rooksby – says: It is hoped by providing this experience to local children, it will provide a wider understanding of social issues in our communities, whilst also assisting, checking and packing shoe boxes and seeing where needs are, and why!
 
We remain encouraged by the interest from local schools in wanting to support the shoebox experience at the charities workshop in Eastbourne.
 
Computers for Charities welcomes further requests from Schools, Youth groups, etc. Please call: 01323 848588 or email Pippa. admin@computersforcharities.org
