Simplyhealth donates Chromebooks to charity to improve digital literacy in the community
Simplyhealth have donated 40 Chromebook laptops to Unity, an Andover-based charity, to support community groups across Test Valley.
As part of the Digital Inclusion Project at Unity, the Chromebooks will support people in the Test Valley area to become more digitally literate and improve their confidence when online.
It’s fantastic that we’re able to gift these Chromebooks due to changes in our IT equipment, to those in the community who need them the most.
It’s part of our purpose to support community causes, and we are delighted to be able to support Unity with this donation.
First established in 1987, Unity is a non-profit incorporated UK charity part-funded by Test Valley Borough Council and Hampshire County Council, working with local organisations to support vulnerable members of the Test Valley Community.
Our thanks to Simplyhealth for generously providing Unity with over 40 Chromebooks. Our digital team will be able to use them in the community to help people who are not digitally able to learn and access the internet, shop online and perhaps even connect to family and friends. This project could enhance people’s lives particularly if they are feeling lonely or isolated and need that little bit of help. Simplyhealth are simply the best!
