Keith Stanford, from Kildare town did his bit for charity recently when we won a laptop for Aoibheann's Pink Tie charity. Keith entered a competition run by Rehab Recycle, where people were invited to nominate their chosen charity to win a laptop. Keith was impressed by the good work the charity has been doing. Aoibheann's Pink Tie was set up by Jimmy Norman in 2010 to help support children and their families during their child's cancer battle to beat cancer.
The competition was run by Promise It to Rehab Recycle, which offers laptops and desktops to schools, charities and community groups at very low entry price points. Nuala Sheedy, Rehab Recycle said, " As one of Ireland's largest employers of people with disabilities we have a great understanding of the challenges that charities face. Our Promise It to Rehab Recycle intiative allows companies to donate old and unused equipment which we will refurbish and sell onto schools and charities at a reduced rate. We decided to run the competition to give one charity the oppurtunity to win a laptop which would hopefully be a good resource to them and make a big difference to the great work that they do."
Keith and Nuala went to the headquaters of Aoibheann's Pink Tie in East Wall, Dublin to deliver the laptop to volunteer Linda O'Connell. She said, " We are thrilled with the new laptop, which will be the main laptop for the organisation. This one we are using is on it's last legs. When I was typing letters it had a mind of it's own. It's brilliant to have a new laptop. It'll make my job so much easier. We'd like to say a big thank you to Keith for nominating us and also to Promise it to Rehab Recycle!"
