- Change lives when you change your computer

COMPUTERS 4 Africa provides life changing solutions for the disposing of your redundant working PC.

Your computer could be reused giving someone else an education and opportunities for a better way of life.

Our charity encourages the local community to drop off their unwanted working computers, laptops, keyboards, flat screen monitors and other PC accessories at our local appeal.

Our service is environmentally sound, ethical and free. All the computers we receive are securely data wiped to Ministry of Defence standards before being sent to schools and community projects across Africa.

This event takes place at Computers 4 Africa, Unit 2 Taunton Retail Park, Taunton and runs today, Thursday and Friday, from 10am-4pm.
