Digi-donation does the click for schools and charities
As regular visitors to our webpage know, we are big believers in giving a hand up to people who want to get on. And we don’t just believe in it – we do lots of it too. It’s one of the reasons we love working with charities and schools in a number of different ways.
We know that many of them get by with very limited resources and that’s why the Harrison Foundation and our business partner, the financial technology firm True Potential, are always ready to help.
Our friends at the Chronicle Sunshine Fund share our belief that everyone should have access to opportunities, irrespective of social background or disability. We were delighted to meet up recently with the Sunshine Fund and representatives from schools and local charities including Hadrian School in Newcastle, Ceaders Academy and Dryden Schools in Gateshead, Cleaswell Hill Foundation in Northumberland, True Colours Theatre Group and North East Sight Matters.
We provided them with 30 laptop computers to help them continue their work and support children’s learning.
These are exactly the types of organisations and charities that we love to support because they are all about making a practical and positive difference to people’s lives when they most need support.
Something relatively small like a laptop can make a huge difference in terms of learning and accessibility. Although both the Harrison Foundation and True Potential work across the UK, our hearts are very much in the North East where we started, so it’s great to support local charities and people who live in the same communities as us.
