Glossop charity looking for new trustees

PCrefurb's volunteers in action helping to 'bridge the digital divide'.

A Glossop-based charity has launched an appeal in its search for new trustees.

PCrefurb is a growing locally-based charity that aims to “bridge the digital divide” by refurbishing donated IT equipment and redistributing it to those most in need.

At its core is a group of volunteers, many of whom face complex challenges in their lives, who work as a team refurbishing the donated IT equipment.

In collaboration with the NHS and key community partners, PCrefurb also runs a Digital Wellbeing Project which supports people to develop their skills and confidence in using devices for day-to-day activities that improve their health and well-being.

But as the charity grows, it needs to expand its board of trustees.

Chair of PCrefurb, Ed Kelly, told the Chronicle: “We are keen to recruit new trustees who will be passionate about our charity and what we do and have the time to support the services we offer.”

PCrefurb are looking to appoint a small number of trustees, including a new secretary, and is particularly looking for people with HR skills and those who have experience of managing growth in the voluntary sector.

If you can help, contact Ed Kelly on 07784 862756 or by email to edkellys@yahoo.com, for more information and an informal discussion.
