CHP continues support for Manchester charity after closure of Skipton House

Community Health Partnerships have donated 28 computer monitors to charity. The equipment was previously used by staff in the Skipton House office and is no longer needed as these offices have now closed.

The monitors were donated to ZenTec, an IT support company based in Dukinfield, Manchester. Six of the monitors have already found a new home in Willow Wood Hospice, Ashton-Under-Lyme. Another six are headed to Rueben’s Retreat, a charity that supports families with complexly poorly children and families of child loss.

CHP forged links with ZenTec during the pandemic, when they donated 31 old laptops to their campaign to provide devices for families who were struggling to purchase new equipment for their children to take part in online lessons during lockdown.

Although children have returned to schools there is still a major need for devices and equipment across many community groups and CHP are committed to helping charities as much as possible as part of their corporate social responsibility strategy.

Denise Cottam, Corporate Social Responsibility Delivery Manager at CHP, commented: “As an organisation, CHP had an opportunity to help those most in need during a difficult time, by donating our unused equipment to ZenTec.’

“Continuing this relationship will help many other local groups whilst providing an environmentally friendly solution for repurposing our unused equipment.”

If you should have any old IT equipment that needs donating, you can contact ZenTec by emailing, via their website or on social media on twitter @ZentecNetwork.
