Burgess Pet Care was recently supported by Computer Disposals Ltd, part of Restore Technology, to provide 67 computers to Business2Schools, a charity that places donations of computers with schools across the region and beyond.
Burgess’ donation of 35 laptop and 32 desktop computers, which will be given to schools across the region including Snaith Primary School, comes at a critical time when many pupils’ learning is being delivered by teachers online due to lockdown, enabling them to stay connected and access vital online learning from home.
Mark Womersley, Finance Director for Burgess Pet Care said: –
“Burgess wants to play its part in helping to ensure that as many children as possible have access to computers. We know how important it is for schools to be able to provide laptops to help children whose learning would otherwise suffer during lockdown, to stay connected with school and also their friends.
“We are delighted to be able to support our schools, enabling them to use their budgets in other areas, whilst making a better impact on the environment,” he added.
Conscious to ensure secure erasure of the existing data on the equipment, Burgess contacted CDL to support the donation by providing data cleansing services prior to delivering them to the school.
CDL Sales Director, Ben Griffin, said: “We were more than willing to help Burgess Pet Care complete their donation safely and securely. Data security is hugely important to us here at CDL and so we were happy that Burgess approached us to fully sanitised the equipment before it was passed on.
We hope the school and their children continue to get real benefit from the equipment for many years to come.”
