We need your old unwanted hardware

Over the last two months we have been getting an increasing number of requests for computer equipment. These have mainly been coming from:

  • People who are isolated and have no way of communicating with the outside world
  • Families who have children that need to do homework, and have no computer or internet connection to help them with this

We have managed to supply several families and individuals with devices they can use.

We are now doing a shout out for anyone who is able to donate any of the following:

  • laptops
  • tablets
  • desktops
  • monitors,
  • smart phones
  • chargers for smartphones
  • mice
  • keyboards
  • power cables and connecting cables
  • mini wifi hubs that can provide internet access

We will take anything. Even with old devices, we will install lightweight versions of operating systems like Linux which we will attempt to make look as much as possible like Windows 10. These computers are for short term use for people who don't have access to a computer with an internet. They are not intended to be state of the art.

All computers will be wiped of their data to a professional standard as soon as we get them.

Any equipment we can not use will be disposed of in an ecologically friendly way.

If you want to donate something, please contact us at damian@catbytes.community, or call 07939288079.

Don't worry about how old your equipment is!
