Connexus, of which Herefordshire Housing is a part, has donated computing equipment worth over £1000 to The Courtyard arts and theatre centre. This comes as The Courtyard, which is a registered charity and receives funding from the Arts Council, announced a £1.5 million ‘Transform the Yard’ improvement project to transform its facilities.
When Adam Huselbee, Head of ICT at Connexus, saw that the 6 laptops and 2 desktop PCs were no longer fit-for-purpose at the Housing Association, he had the bright idea to donate them to a local good cause.
“While no longer suitable for our use, these are well-maintained computers that are perfect for increasing connectivity at The Courtyard. Connexus are proud to partner with and support local organisations and we’re pleased these machines are getting a second lease of life in such a well-loved Hereford institution.”
Matt Coles, Commercial Manager at The Courtyard, explained:
“The Courtyard are delighted to have received free IT equipment from Connexus. This cost-saving will allow us to focus our finances on our 2020 ‘Transform The Yard’ redevelopment, which will really level up the facilities we offer here.”
