Residents click on to computer opportunities
An internet based price-comparison site has stepped in to help out residents at an Abergele Sheltered Housing Scheme by donating two new computers so that they can surf the internet in style.
MoneySupermarket.Com, who is based in Flintshire, donated two new computers to Pentre Mawr, a Sheltered Housing Scheme in Abergele, managed by Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, part of the Pennaf Housing Group.
Euan Hughes and Jack Stokes from Bushmede Contractors then stepped in to build a bespoke work station and Communities 2.0 (a Wales Government Digital Inclusion project) arranged for one of their Technology outreach officers to install the computer and provide guidance for the residents to enable them to get connected.
“It’s a true partnership arrangement and shows fantastic generosity from all involved,” said Louise Blackwell.
“The residents are absolutely delighted with their new computer which has now been installed in a communal area and would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who has helped out,” added Pentre Mawr Warden Alison Pring Warden.
