Earlier this year, Benchmark International donated 20 tablets to care homes, hospitals and hospices to help residents stay connected whilst they were unable to have visitors.
The donations were a success and were well-received by the residents and those working at the facilities.
Keen to find another way of supporting people who have been in need during these unprecedented times, Benchmark International, in collaboration with Lantec, partnered with the same local charity, PCrefurb, to donate 32 refurbed PCs to disadvantaged people.PCrefurb is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) based in Glossop in the High Peak of Derbyshire, and founded with the prime purpose of helping bridge the ‘digital divide’.
The PCs will be delivered to individuals and organisations such as community groups, charities, after school clubs and special needs groups, who would not be able to afford these items. The PCs will help the recipients develop their IT skills and, along with this, their confidence, and to connect in a world that is becoming increasingly digital.
We would like to thank PCrefurb for all the work it does in the community and are pleased to have been able to partner with them again.
