More Good News

Networking is good and provides real benefits in the Charity world as with the recent dental equipment manoeuvres.  

Sorry for the delay in getting our 2020 Christmas Shoebox Update prepared, but the last year and months in particular have been frantic.

So here we are hot off the press… and of course we hope and trust people will wish to support the 2021 Christmas Shoebox appeal. Thank you to all who have supported over the years and well done. Also the staff and children at Novi Pazar provide a big thumbs up!

Working Together Makes good things Happen

Working together is the only way.

Computers for Charities handles a wide variety of enquiries and many nothing to do with computers.

Organisations worldwide with needs and likewise folk wanting to do good.

Some months ago an email from Edwin Moar in Shetland enquired as to relocating dentistry equipment after dental surgeries in Shetland had gone through an updating process.

Job done and possibly for the first time in local history.

People in Burkina Faso have now received the equipment to get started…

But only made possible by help..Northwards Ltd of Shetland providing the transportation free of charge from Shetland to Leicester, Feed the Hungry Leicester shipping to the places of need.

4 Dentist chairs on this occasion.. shortly more to follow to other countries.

Thank you and well done

Unique Britain

Not just words but actions. Britain has many unique qualities.. Which includes our charitable nature.

Throughout this COVID period, numerous organisations across the country and their dedicated volunteers have given time, skills to support the vulnerable & disadvantaged within our communities and further afield.

CfC is no exception and like the others provided full time support and assistance locally, nationally and overseas.

Sadly there will be many organisations unable to reopen their doors, jobs lost and vital support irretrievable due to severe financial losses. And for the rest of us still standing our continued existence remains in the balance without continued support.

The recent BBC Make a difference Appeal enabled thousands of children to gain access to a computer during the schools closure…. Equipment valued at several hundreds of thousands of pounds donated… But despite this, it costs and for us, 1500 laptops made available to our countries children was at a cost of £75,000 to prepare and send out.

So please bare a thought for your local charities and continue to encourage and support those seeking to make a difference.

Not just words but actions….. Well done to all of you hidden Heroes….

Action not Words

Saving the planet is all well and good. However to do this, we need support to have the tools for the job.

All of us must take responsibility in this…

Computers for Charities needs solid financial support for the purchase of a commercial plastic granulator. Without support the rot from plastic waste continues.

Companies / Individuals help us reach the target at Crowd Funder. 13 days to run on this one.

Let’s see Action, not Words!.

Thank you. Simon Rooksby. Chairman Computers for Charities

Informed Decisions

In all things. It remains our responsibility alone to make clear judgements and the right decisions. Sh

ould we choose and make effort, information is available to aid this. Not long ago, Tony Blair former Prime Minister assured Britain’s people of weapons of massed destruction, which cost lives and totally destabilised nation. This information proved to be false.

COVID 19 is not a conspiracy, it does exist and has cost lives. Many people now will be weighing up to have a vaccine, which for some this will be a help.

However it is not the panacea for all viruses, as with Cancer there will be many forms. It is sad, that the same level of investment undertaken here, has not contributed to the reduction of Ebola, Cerebral Maleria, TB, Typhoid. But the thing that has not been said, not all die from contracting COVID.

Annually around 9% of the worlds population contract flu. But not all die.

Using statistics from across Europe, which currently where I am, as I travel across Europe with our annual Christmas Shoebox appeal for children & Elderly. I can give you the figures….

In the United Kingdom of those testing positive for COVID. This represents  0.02575757575% of our population of 66 million people across Scotland, England, Wales & Northern Ireland.

We all will know people in this position. Those sadly that have died from the condition represent 0.00093081818%

Finally the chances of catching COVID or risk factor remains similar throughout Europe, as with all these statistics at 0.03613764699%.

This is a serious matter, but sadly fear & anxiety have taken root. In part thanks to our media. So take heart and for those with faith. Remember God casts out all fear….
