WATCH: T-shirt fundraiser to help keep loved ones connected

The Craft Barn in Hadfield has teamed up with Glossop charity PCrefurb to raise vital funds to buy tablets to distribute to local care homes, hospices and hospitals.

They are doing so by selling limited edition charity t-shirts - designed by India Shan Merrett and local children's illustrator Chellie Carroll. 

They signify the dark and the light during these difficult times. 

The shirts are £16 each and, for every 10 t-shirts sold, another tablet can be provided to help patients stay connected with their loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Julia Norton, The Craft Barn manager, said her aim is to sell 100 t-shirts, which will equate to 10 tablets.

PCrefurb refurbish donated IT equipment to make it accessible to individual and groups in need. They also provide informal training and technical advice at a drop in workshop, directly supporting the local community.

Most recently, they dropped off 10 tablets to Tameside Hospital, which will be used by patients to contact their family, friends and loved ones while they are staying in hospital, if patients are unable to use their own mobile phone.
