HUDDERSFIELD accountancy firm Simpson Wood has donated more than 20 computers to charity.
The firm, based at Market Street, has handed the equipment over to the Disabled Peoples Electronic Village Hall.
Daniel McAllister, of Simpson Wood, said: We recently replaced all our office computers and wanted to find an organisation which could make good use of IT equipment that still remained of high specification.
The Disabled Peoples Electronic Village Hall is a charity we know well and we are aware of the significant work they do in the disabled community and beyond, helping to provide people with IT skills to assist them with future employment.
This seemed an ideal opportunity to help a worthwhile local cause while at the same time improving the skills of people looking for employment, which would be of benefit to their future employers.

Said Ms WIlkinson: As a charity, funds are always difficult to come by, particularly for capital equipment. This donation not only allows us to replace existing equipment, but to expand the service we provide.
It is heart-warming to receive recognition of the work we do from the private sector.
