Support technology novices in your community to get online with your old PC.
We know lots of you have old, working PCs and laptops sitting there gathering dust and space at home. We can help you get rid of them safely and securely, giving them a second lease of life to do good in your community and for people in later life.
In collaboration with Age UK and Microsoft Authorised Refurbishers, we can rebuild your old PCs into more affordable PCs which go to support community-based projects and older people directly.
What happens to my old PC?
We know that your old PC may still contain private information, which is why we guarantee to wipe them clean, securely removing all your data to internationally approved standards. We also clean, test and then install Microsoft software to get the PC ready for a new home and all for a worthy cause. The proceeds of your donation will directly support Age UK’s vital work to help train older technology novices to use computers to experience the benefits offered by today’s modern technology.
What exactly do I donate?
All we need is the working PC, desktop body, or laptop and electrical accessories that make up the PC. We are unable to take any screens or any other equipment.
Where do I donate my PC?

Residents in Dorset and east Devon are being asked about plans to bring in passenger boats to cut coastal traffic.
The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) have been looking into the viability of waterborne travel.
Pilot routes could link Weymouth to Portland, Bournemouth with Swanage, Studland and Poole, and Sidmouth with Seaton, Lyme Regis and West Bay.
Residents have until 28 February to comment on the idea which forms part of the draft joint local transport plan for Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset.
