An Immingham company which helps local small businesses and community groups has been given a set of computers by the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.


Neil Cartwright, a business advisor from the university’s EPICentre based in Lincoln, presented five personal computers to Chris Mason, a project manager at North-East Lincolnshire Community Business Development Ltd.


The obsolete PCs will be upgraded and then passed on to community and voluntary groups in the local area.


“We are very grateful to the university for this donation of five PCs which are absolutely vital in the work that we do in North-East Lincolnshire,” said Neil King of North-East Lincolnshire Community Business Development Ltd.


“We will be training local people to upgrade the computers and donating them to groups in the voluntary sector.”


Any businesses wishing to receive free confidential advice from the university can call the EPICentre on 01522 886911.
