The Division of Natural Sciences has been collecting books to send to Books2Africa (a Canterbury based registered charity 1152599). This drive led by Dr Andrew Wickens from Sports and Exercise Sciences collected 18 decent sized boxes of books which the charity were extremely pleased with.
This October in celebration of Black History Month, they are organising the Kent Computer Drive to collect donations of laptops and desktops to be refurbished and shipped to students and teachers in Africa. Their goal is to raise 500 laptops and 200 desktops and are offering free collections and drop-offs within Kent only. Anyone who wishes to donate their old laptop or desktop in Kent or to find out more, can head to the website to arrange a free collection or drop-off.
A shout out to the Division of Natural Sciences, and to Andrew in particular for collecting so many books for such a worthy cause.
