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.”

Creating a buzz


Working with Naturally Social:

Natalie and the rest of the team at Naturally Social – a local communications agency – support the initiative and help spread the word through local radio, news and social media promotion.

Laptops, PC’s and tablets – as well as other unused tech – have been donated from residents and businesses from all corners of Wiltshire, as well as further afield – the furthest to date being from Manchester!

The scheme has received both local and national recognition with features on BBC Points West and BBC Breakfast, even becoming South West Awards’ COVID-19 Community Champions award winners!

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,

If needed, we also replace faulty components such as keyboards, monitors 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…

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 not-for-profit 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 2020 to November 2021, over 1254 laptops were refurbished, recycled and gifted back into the local community, which means we’ve now hit the 1000th device milestone, but we still have much more to do!

Schools, charities, voluntary organisations, local councils and families from across Wiltshire have all benefited from the scheme.
