The Wiltshire Digital Drive

A Community Interest Company (CIC)

Wiltshire Digital Drive is a Community Interest Company (CIC) set up to refurbish and recycle donated laptops to gift back to the community, enabling education in Wiltshire and bridging the digital divide.

The WDD is a non-profit making organisation and every penny raised or laptop donated goes directly to support the community in Wiltshire. Priority IT, Naturally Social and Turner and Partners all support on a pro bono basis as part of their corporate social responsibility strategies.

From April to September 2020, 150 laptops have been refurbished, recycled and gifted back into the local community. Schools, charities, voluntary organisations, the local council and individuals from across Wiltshire have all benefited from the scheme.

Where it all Bee..gan!

“Our mission and purpose; just like a bee brings pollen from flower to flower to help the environment, we bring technology from person to person to enable education, knowledge and learning.”

Flow

Creating a buzz

With Naturally Social…

Naturally Social, a local communications agency, support the initiative and help spread the word through local radio, news and social media promotion. Laptops and tablets have been donated from Wiltshire residents and businesses, as well as further afield – the furthest to date being Manchester! The scheme has received both local and national recognition with features on BBC Points West and BBC Breakfast.

Bee the difference

You can help us achieve more…

Whilst we give our time for free, we are always looking for funding to help pay for parts.

The parts required to upgrade a machine include replacing of the hard drive, memory, Wi-Fi modules, and, if needed, we will replace faulty components such as keyboards, screens, and chargers.

Just £30 could help us securely wipe, update, and refurbish one device that will go directly to a young person or family in need, in Wiltshire.

Help us to keep buzzing…

Spread the word

Twitter @WiltsDigiDrive using the hashtag #DonateYourDigital [or] by joining the Facebook group ‘Wiltshire Digital Drive’

We have number of assets that you can use on your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. Please email info@wiltshiredigitaldrive.org for more information.

Thank you for your support, and we hope you can help us take a byte out of the digital divide in Wiltshire.
