TODDLERS at a Tannochside nursery are proving that IT can be child’s play thanks to a donation of recycled computers.

Haven Recycle, a social firm providing employment for disabled and disadvantaged people, has handed the machines over for use by the youngsters at the Little Fitters nursery in Tannochside Business Park.

Haven offers secure recycling of IT and electrical equipment for businesses across Scotland. The reconditioned equipment is then either donated to charities, schools or community groups or sold.

Commercial manager Ewan Fisher said: “Haven Recycle saw an opportunity to help other organisations for whom IT equipment is an essential but expensive outlay.”

Cecelia McKillop, manager of Little Fitters, said: “The opportunities for the children to extend their learning is great. They are playing skilful games, recognising numbers, letters and colours.”
