We were delighted to recently donate nine old iPads to Barnsley Hospice.
The devices which were over 7 years old, did not comply with our current security service so could no longer be used by Berneslai Homes. We wanted to donate them locally so reached out to the community to see who could best utilise the devices.
The Barnsley Hospice ,like a lot of charities has been severely affected by the current Covid-19 pandemic as they have had to close their shops and fund raising has been reduced. We were really happy when Barnsley Hospice came forward for the devices for patients to use.
Ian Muffett, Deputy CEO /Finance Director added: “I wanted to say a huge thank you for on behalf of the hospice for the iPads you donated. These will enable us to offer more video calling to patients and their families and will be a tremendous boost to patient care, particularly in the light of covid restrictions.”
