A refurbished computer going to the Womens Activity Group in Athy
We recently updated our site with a IT wish list , the idea behind it is that there are often companies with large amounts of computer hardware that they will upgrade from time to time.
What we are hoping to do , is get our hands on that hardware that is being disposed of and recycle it back into working machines again.
So if you know of any companies who are looking to dispose of their old hardware , would you be so kind as to ask them to contact us and we can arrange delivery / collection of their machine's.
