CarnaudMetalbox donates computers to colleges
Its been a tough time for parents in the UK, as lockdown due to Covid-19 has seen schools closed and homeschooling having to be undertaken.
Matthew Cave from CMbEs IT department realised the company had some older PC’s that were no longer to company standard, he cleaned them up and with the help from the CMbE team donated them to a local school and a college who had students with much need of them.
In total 68 PC’s, 42 Screens and 9 Laptops were donated to Shipley College and Titus Salt School.
The extra technology resource was very much welcomed by Nav Chohan – Shipley College Principal who had this to say: “The current pandemic has highlighted digital poverty amongst many individuals in the area. Too many students do not have access to devices that they can use to study in these unusual times.
“On behalf of the College I’d like to say many, many thanks to CarnaudMetalbox. Their amazing contribution will enable several students to succeed at College. This sort of support for the less privileged from a leading local manufacturer is greatly appreciated.”
CMbE has a history of donating to the local community, a few years ago computers were donated to the local Food Bank, these were gratefully received and came in useful for people doing job searches at their Job Club.
|Marc Hoche – Vice President and General Manger of CMbE said: “CMB are only too happy to help! It is great to think that these machines can be repurposed and in donating to Shipley College and Titus Salt School aid students in their studies. We place significant emphasis on training the next generation of engineers and so understand the importance of access to information.”|
