ITG gives equipment to IT Schools Africa

| July 23, 2013

Imperial pictureThe Imperial Tobacco Group has donated more than 300 computer monitors and a number of laser printers to a charity that helps schools in Africa.

IT Schools Africa took the equipment away following Imperial’s move from its former head office in Bristol, U.K., and has distributed it to schools in Zimbabwe.

Imperial’s new global head office has been equipped with new IT equipment, which meant that some of the existing technology was no longer needed.

“Knowing we’d have a large number of monitors available, we wanted to ensure they were put to good use,” said Tony Rickard, corporate center IT manager.

“The charity was running an appeal for flat screens for use in schools, which we considered a very valuable re-use of the redundant equipment.

“It is great to know that rather than being disposed of, the equipment is being used for a good cause.”

Ron Pearce, of IT Schools Africa, said his charity was very grateful for Imperial’s generous support.
