PC Recycler Supports local charity

PC Recycler provides and maintains an 8 computer suite with broadband internet access for the Helping Hand charity in Blackpool:
From PC Recycler

We would just like to confirm that the internet cafe service that PC Recycler have set up and continue to provide for our organisation is vital to the service we are able to offer our vulnerable clients. As you are aware the majority of our clients are unemployed, homeless or living in hostel accomodation and as a result of life controlling problems or addtictions are in a uncontrollable cycle which they cannot break out from. The free access which they gain to the computer suite is allowing them to break that cycle in several ways:-
a) Allowing clients learn skills both in computer literacy and basic English

b) To be able to access local service via the web such as the availablity of housing through the home start scheme, jobcentre plus etc.

c) To produce cv's and to email them to prospective employers

d) To achieve a sense of self worth at being able to spend their time in a worth while manner.

So many thanks and keep up the good work
