A north-east charity that works to tackle poverty is benefiting from unwanted IT equipment.
Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE) has teamed up with XS Resources, a not-for-profit organisation which resells and recycles unwanted IT equipment.
Through the collaboration, CFINE will collect unwanted but functional IT equipment straight from offices in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire free of charge.
All information on computers and other equipment will be securely wiped of data before being sold on, with part of the profit going to CFINE.
The equipment being collected will include desktop PCs, laptops, flat screen monitors, servers, tablets, smartphones and flat-screen televisions.
Collections will take place every Friday from November 30 and anyone with equipment to dispose of can visit www.xsresources.org to book a collection.
CFINE aims to improve health, well-being and the environment and tackle poverty through a range of support and services for disadvantaged and vulnerable low-income individuals, families and communities in the north-east.
Earlier this month, CFINE appealed for help as its foodbank began to run out of supplies due to extremely high demand.
In just two weeks, the organisation received 5,480 kg of donations, equivalent to 13,047 meals.
Foodbank use in Aberdeenshire has risen 7% over the past 12 months.
