Computer Aid's First Donor Networking Brunch

Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming some of our donors to the House of Commons for a networking brunch. 

As a thank you for all the equipment donated this year, we organised our first annual networking brunch to showcase where some of our equipment has gone this year and who it has helped. We were lucky enough to be joined by Amber Harrison, Director of CSR for SITA, who spoke about her experience on the Zambia Digital Schools project, sharing some wonderful anecdotes and impressive statistics.

We also had our trustee Dominic McVey discussing the importance of digital skills in the emerging job markets he works in, as well as MP for Newcastle upon Tyne and Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy, Science and Innovation Chi Onwurah discussing her experience of working in the technology sector.

It was amazing to see so many of our supporters in one room, and we relished the opportunity to discuss our work face to face with the people who make it happen.

We hope to organise more events in the future and bring our donors together more often.
