Safewell asks for donations of old digital equipment after Christmas

By Nick Batten on 3 January, 2024

Royal Wootton Bassett business Safewell Ltd is urging anyone who received a new laptop or tablet for Christmas to consider donating their old, unwanted equipment to a good cause. 

The occupational health and safety company is a ‘Donation Station’ for Wiltshire Digital Drive, a non-profit Community Interest Company which refurbishes and recycles donated laptops, keyboards and tablets. These are then gifted to local schools, charities and other similar organisations to help provide them with access to digital educational equipment. 

Wiltshire Digital Drive has 15 Donation Stations across North and West Wiltshire, with Safewell being the closest location for the Swindon and Royal Wootton Bassett area. 

Nick Evans, Safewell’s Managing Director, said, “Since becoming part of Wiltshire Digital Drive six months ago, we have taken donations of more than 70 pieces of equipment from our local community. We hope that those who received new laptops and tablets at Christmas, or who are planning to buy in the January sales, may want to help us make more of a difference in 2024 by gifting their unused items to the scheme.” 

Donations can be made to Safewell on weekdays between 9.30am and 4pm from January 2nd

Safewell can be contacted on info@safewell.co.uk or 01793 852951. 

The company offers a range of occupational health and safety services, including consultancy, risk assessments, health surveillance medicals, occupational health assessments, and first aid training. More information can be found at: safewell.co.uk

Wiltshire Digital Drive was founded in 2020, after the success of a laptop recycling initiative to help school children learning from home during the pandemic.
