A Really ‘Smart’ Donation from Dowson!

Chatterbox has been very fortunate over the years to enjoy the support of a range of community groups and bodies who have recognised the significance of the work we do for vulnerable people. Well, we have another name to add to our ever-growing list of supporters: Dowson Primary School. This school in Hyde recently donated a state-of-the-art Smart Board to Chatterbox, and while it might have taken three trips in three different vans to get it here, we are incredibly grateful for their generous contribution. The Smart Board will be a vital teaching resource for our adult education programme, as well as our childcare provision. A quick internet search shows that these boards generally retail for upwards of £1000, and I don’t know of many community charities with that kind of money to spare!

 

So, a huge thank you to the team at Dowson- you truly are a credit to your community.
