Chamber of Commerce Provide 11,000 Potential IT Donors

16/10/2013

Computers 4 Africa have recently become members of the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce.  As a registered UK charity, we accept donations of working but redundant IT hardware.  After it has been through our refurbishment process, including secure data-wiping, we ship it to schools, hospitals and community projects across Africa.  Donating to us is not only hugely beneficial to the developing continent but also a fully WEEE compliant way to contribute to your CSR targets while disposing of your unwanted IT.

Being part of the Chamber allows us to connect with businesses across Kent, which is vitally important to us as Kent is the area in which we live and work.  It is at the heart of our Big and Famous area, which is the area local to our charity.  Based in Aylesford, we are keen to link to the Kentish community as well as reach a national audience.

The Chamber provides an abundance of networking opportunities and we are making it one of our goals to attend one or two events each month to build up a rapport with fellow members of the Chamber.  As we are lucky enough to have access to a full member list we are working on developing a relationship with members outside of the events as well.  We have communicated with each business contact to introduce ourselves and the work we do, which is already producing successful results!

‘Thinking Business’, the Chamber’s bi-monthly magazine, is yet another way for us to reach out to a wide and varied range of companies across the county.  We are looking forward to utilising this resource and hope to feature in articles and interviews for this publication.

Even though we are a charity, we appreciate there is a need to apply business principles to the way we run as this will allow us to maximise our potential, both in terms of receiving donations and sourcing beneficiaries.  The Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce is a fantastic way to develop our business acumen and, at the same time, a way to meet and develop relationships within the local community.
 

“I see Computers 4 Africa becoming members of the Invicta Chamber as being vital to the growth of our presence throughout Kent.  As a Charity, we realise that before we can work together, we need to know of each other.  Through the Chamber we can build relationships, which are paramount to our success.”                                                                       Sharon Roberts, Head of Marketing.
