This award grew out of the work we are doing with Moneywise plus to offer a simple and green way for the business community to tackle digital exclusion, by donating unwanted IT equipment , which is then wiped clean, upgraded, and passed on with free data to job seekers. Sangeeta Patel, from Moneywise plus, presented the award , and shared how difficult it had been picking a winner, when all the companies shortlisted had made a great contribution.
She also shared quotes from people who had benefitted from the work
