Donate old computers to African pupils
GOT a new computer for Christmas?
Well, don't resign your old machine to the rubbish tip – children in Africa can put it to good use.
Rotary clubs in Gloucestershire are seeking to re-home unwanted computers as part of IT Schools For Africa.
Andy Jarrett, of Severn Vale Rotary Club, is taking part in the annual drive for hard drives.
Gents, come in to Earl's & Co and enjoy a haircut and finish, glass of whisky and a shoeshine for £18.50

He said: "This is the eighth collection we have done, but it's the first year we are collecting in Stow-on-the-Wold and Cheltenham. We are really pleased that it is spreading out to other places."
Collections will take place on Saturday at Tesco stores in Stroud, Quedgeley, Cheltenham and Stow-on-the-Wold.
Andy said they usually receive around 100 donated computers, but he hopes that this year's effort will be even greater.
The machines will be sent out to Kenya at the end of January.
They will be at Stroud from 11am to noon, Quedgeley from 1.30pm to 2.30pm, Cheltenham from 9.30am to 2.30pm and Stow from 11am to 1.30pm.
