Surplus TVs Donated to WPAT Schools
Surplus TVs have found a new home in primary schools across Warrington, Widnes and Frodsham.
The donation of 43 LG 37-inch flat screen sets to Warrington Primary Academy Trust was made by Amazon and Northwich-based business consultancy Gleave.
Gleave, which supports Amazon with their management of surplus warehouse equipment, came up with the idea of donating to local schools.
The sets will be divided between the eight schools in WPAT.
Fiona Waite of Gleave said: "We were working through items no longer needed due to spec changes and the TVs were on the list. One of our team knew that these would make a big impact at local schools, so we worked with Amazon to make this donation an exception to our usual route for reusing, re-purposing or recycling."
Nikki Edwards, WPAT's Finance and Operations Director, said: "We're so grateful to Gleave and Amazon for thinking about the needs of local schools with this generous donation. The sets will be a valuable addition to our bank of audio-visual equipment and will be used to show learning resources in classrooms across our eight primary schools."
