As many of our clients may know, Urban Network are proactive in helping community and charity as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility. We are proud to be able to support public initiatives in our immediate surrounding area, and to be able to contribute toward projects that benefit the people around us.
This July Urban Network have selected the John Scurr Community Centre in our local borough of Tower Hamlets to receive a donation of IT equipment for the use of the centre programs.
The John Scurr Community Centre, serving the needs of the Tower Hamlets residents from under 5’s to over 50s. The charity provides learning, training, a youth club, homework club and older people’s lunch club as part of Newlon Fusion’s regeneration programme.
Jane Evans, Director John Scurr Community Centre said “I would like to say a huge thank you to Urban Network for the computer equipment. This represents a significant aid for the community centre. Several children’s projects including children’s art, music and dance and children’s cookery, finishing with a live performance are taking place at the centre. As part of all our activities, using computers were key in keeping children engaged and inspired.”
Ms Evans also said that the computers have benefited our community since the start of the project in July by walk-in women from the local community who needed computer access for research, going online and job search. The equipment will continue to help hundreds of residents in Tower Hamlets to access to online learning and training courses in the future.
“We’re delighted to be able to provide this hardware to the community centre and contribute to the local community in Tower Hamlets. It is heartening to see that the technology will be put to great use for the local public young and old who may not have access to these facilities elsewhere” added Stuart Willcocks, Managing Director of Urban Network.
