CHRISTMAS came early for a new job club in Great Sankey after they received several computers and laptops from a property management company.

James Peacock Property based in Stockton Heath did not want their computers to go to waste following an overhaul of their systems.

Operations director Gerry Mason-Rolls was thrilled when Kings Church got in touch after reading the appeal for their unwanted computers in the Warrington Guardian.

He said: “We’d just had an overhaul of our computer system and didn’t want the old ones to just go to landfill, so we appealed for people to come forward and put them to good use.

“This job club will be a great asset to the community and we’re so glad we’ve been able to help get it set up for the new year.

“We’ve also passed one to a young lad who was studying IT at college but didn’t have a computer at home, and it really made his day.

“We’re so grateful to Henry Seddon, from Henry’s Laptops for refurbishing them and coming with us to hand them over, it felt like Christmas for all of us.”

Jacky Johnson one of the ministers at Kings Church on behalf of their Community Project with Christians Against Poverty, added: “Our first eight-week Job Club starts on January 21, so the offer of the free computers couldn’t have been more perfectly timed, they will be absolutely crucial.

“If anyone wants to join our friendly Job Club, located at King’s Community Centre in Great Sankey, they can reach us via Warrington Job Center or contact us on 07749882493.”
