By Liz Nicholls

Child literacy will get a boost from the IT crowd if schools and businesses join in a campaign to recycle their old and unwanted computer equipment.

Richard Langshaw of LoopCR launches the Great IT Clear-Out which is supporting child literacy scheme Buster's Book Club.

Kent business LoopCR has launched the Great IT Clear-Out and will pay a donation to the Buster’s Book Club scheme for every PC or laptop received that can be successfully refurbished.

Richard Langshaw from LoopCR said: “We would like schools, businesses and charities to get involved with us to get rid of their old IT equipment they are no longer using. We will make it useable elsewhere in the world for people who don’t have access to mainline computing.”

The business offers free collections for unwanted IT items including PCs, laptops, netbooks, servers, printers, monitors, computer cables, keyboards, power leads, and mice. Any equipment containing personal data will be securely wiped.

Simon Dolby from Buster’s Book Club said: “We are delighted that LoopCR’s good work will support our initiative, which helps thousands of children to improve their reading and develop a real love of books.”

He added: “There is no cost to anyone donating equipment so I hope many organisations and schools will take part. Their old and unwanted computers currently gathering dust might end up being used by underprivileged children on the other side of the world!”

Last academic year, 26,000 pupils at 90 schools took part in Buster’s Book Club and collectively achieved seven and a half million minutes of reading at home.
