A terrific effort from Karen Jackson-John and the team at Bridge St. 25 boxes were filled, wrapped & distributed to local charities for the homeless.
The charities involved were The Wallich, Emmaus Housing Shelter & Woman’s Refuge and will distribute the boxes from Cardiff to Swansea and surrounding towns. Special thanks to our sub contractors – ISTL, 4D, Roofbond, Glass Facades and WK for their generous donations.
Excellent collaboration & teamwork from all involved.
Our IT department had a redundant server and tape drive that was pulled out of use earlier on this year, the server was operational however it was beyond its useable life for WJ purposes.
The IT department decided that instead of disposing of the equipment we should offer it out to a school, as its well known that school budgets are always under financial pressure. After posting on a Education IT forum we had numerous responses including from a high school in Morecambe. The IT team liaised with the schools Network Manager and agreed to meet him out of hours to facilitate the collection as he couldn’t get to our offices in normal office hours.
Please see their response below . . .
‘I’d like to thank yourself and the company for the donation of the tape drive and server, it is most appreciated! We will be using the server to run a new Help Desk, as well as a test machine for virtual servers and prepping our new client image. The tape drive will also be a help for our archiving of data as we can now use tapes twice the size we used to.
Thanks once again and as a note for future, any old equipment will be appreciated greatly by somebody somewhere, especially in the education sector’
What a fantastic way to recycle our old equipment!
Currently works up to ground floor and RC part slab level 2 complete.
