USED computers and laptops, along with other gadgets and gismos, are soon to be rebuilt and sent all the way from Cheltenham to school children in East Africa, thanks to a charity drive.
Ninety computers have been donated by individuals across Gloucestershire to the Cheltenham Sunrise, North Cotswold, and Severn Vale rotary clubs, for IT Schools Africa, which will refurbish the laptops.
Allan Berry, a member of Cheltenham Sunrise Rotary, said: "All of the computers are going to schools, where there will be four or five children to a computer. It's just something we take for granted over here.
"Most importantly, all the hard drives are totally cleaned by an approved programme used by the American military.
"I think people giving their computers away were pleased to get rid of them, but that they were going to be used rather than discarded. Some of the computers weren't very old."
