Children at an Air Training Corp group have benefited from the donation of computer equipment.
The Stowmarket Air Training Corps (ATC) has received the equipment from Bacton software firm Wheatley. Jane Bromley, head of marketing for Wheatley, said: “I spoke to Flight Lieutenant Paula Houghton at the ATC and she was extremely grateful, as they are a registered charity and run an academic programme for the cadets.
“All BTEC examinations have recently been put online, with no paper exam option and large parts of their Duke of Edinburgh Award work is also online.
“They wrote to local businesses at the end of 2014 to ask for help as they had inadequate equipment to support the number of cadets wanting to take examinations and Wheatley have been able to fulfil all of their requirements.” A total of 11 PCs, 10 monitors and two printers were donated.
A recruitment evening for the ATC is running tonight at 7.30pm at The Cadet Centre in Stowmarket.
