Local charity appeals for IT equipment

An Aberdeen charity is appealing to local businesses to donate their old IT equipment.

Aberdeen Cyrenians, a local charity and social care services provider, is appealing to organisations who may be due to renew their old IT equipment to give it a new home.

The cost-of-living crisis is affecting everyone and that includes charities too. Chris Bennett-Taylor, Aberdeen Cyrenians Chief Executive explained:

“We are seeing big increases in demand for our services, with many now simply unable to afford the rising cost-of-living. At the same time our own costs are also rising, creating a difficult position for our services.

“We receive fantastic support from our community and are now appealing to organisations to help us reduce our costs by donating their old, spare, or no longer needed IT equipment, so we can continue to support people in the community.”

“We put the needs of North-east Scotland’s most vulnerable and socially excluded people first. Working together as a community we can bring positive change that allows people to flourish for the future, supporting our whole community to weather this storm.”

If you think your organisation can help, please contact hello@weareac.org
