Burnley-based P3 launched a campaign on social media offering up to five refurbished computers to local charities, groups or good causes who would benefit from the technology.

General Manager Jo Kinder said: “We replace so many PCs that are in good working condition and still have life left in them. We had five to start with and, after great support from local people, we have now donated two of these to The T.E.A.M R.I.S.E Project.”

Sharon Lee the Project Co-ordinator for T.E.A.M R.I.S.E, which provide employment skills to people with learning disabilities, said: “These computers are a God-send to us and will benefit so many people. We do not receive any funding so we rely on grants, donations, holding sponsored events and the sale of craft products that members of the group make and supply via eBay and craft fairs. The project currently costs approximately £40,000 a year to run. The Vedas Group are a fantastic support to us and help us in so many ways.

“We only had the use of a laptop and a tablet and some of our members found them difficult to use. This really is a fantastic donation from P3 .
