Recently I went to the Eco Technology Show in Brighton and got chatting to various people at various stands. On one of those stands was Rock IT. I feel that they really deserve a mention on my blog as I think what they are doing is great! They are a not for profit social enterprise based in Burgess Hill in West Sussex. They 'refurbish and sell [donated] IT equipment...and use the profits from sales to provide IT training to young people not in education, employment or training...'
It is a great way for businesses and individuals in the Brighton and Hove and surrounding areas to recycle their unwanted IT equipment and also a great way to purchase affordable IT equipment once the equipment has been refurbished. Another bonus is that if you are unable to go to them they are happy to come and collect the equipment. They are only after specific types of IT equipment, as specified on their website though and I'm not sure they are selling any refurbished equipment yet, but they will be soon!
So if you are local and you want your old IT equipment to go to a good cause, then what are you waiting for - send it over to Rock IT!
Are there similar organisations to this near you? I'd love to hear about them!
