IT CADETS LAUNCHES NEW RASPBERRY PI PROJECT THANKS TO #WEMAKEICTPOSSIBLE DIGITAL POVERTY CAMPAIGN
ITCadets, a local IT education provider, have launched a new Raspberry Pi project after donations from Smart Digital Business Solutions through their strategic partnership with The Musketeers CIC and the #WeMakeICTPossible digital poverty campaign.
Smart Digital launched a ‘Walk The Walk’ campaign earlier in the year in a bid to get other local businesses to support the #WeMakeICTPossible campaign whilst also supporting their own business.
The ‘Walk The Walk’ campaign sees Smart Digital donate THREE devices per each new local business which signs up to Smart Digital’s services. Smart Digital is a business solutions company to which aims to reduce a business’ current photocopying and printing costs using award-winning Canon kit.
 
The Musketeers continuously liaise with its strategic partners, local education providers and wider ICT organisations in its mission to tackle digital poverty in the local area. After talking to IT Cadets whilst giving a previous donation of computers to expand the IT and Math Cadets offering, The Musketeers and Smart Digital wanted to support further and so an initial three donations of Raspberry Pi systems have been donated. The Raspberry Pi systems are going to be used by the current IT Cadet cohort to create magic mirror photobooth systems.
 
David Marriot, Founder of IT Cadets, says “This is very welcome donation and support from Smart Digital. The donation of Raspberry Pi computers enables us to keep raising the bar of what we can teach and coach the cadets, whilst ensuring our cost for the training remains viable for parents with tightening budgets. The cadets and myself are indebted to the continued support from The Musketeers and now Smart Digital – thanks again for this wonderful donation and continued support”.
 
If you would like your business to “WALK THE WALK” and have a free no obligation audit of your photocopying and printing costs, contact Smart Digital on 01623 749759

JANUARY 2022

Got a new laptop or computer for Christmas and not sure what to do with your old one? Please donate it to our digital poverty campaign. Digital poverty is not just about a lack of equipment, it is also a lack of knowledge and donations to our cause have never been so important. 1 laptop / computer / monetary donation = 1 more family we can help and we cannot begin to describe the difference that piece of technology makes to a child/young person and their family!
