Fenland MP Barclay meets Microsoft in Partnership reps to highlight Charity Technology Trust
NORTH East Cambs MP Stephen Barclay met with representatives from Microsoft in Parliament to highlight the Charity Technology Trust which donates free software to UK causes.
The scheme enables charities to get software packages like Microsoft Office free of charge. They can get up to 50 copies of each title every two years, free upgrades for two years and access to a range of e-learning resources.
Mr Barclay said: “This scheme could be of real benefit to charities across North East Cambridgeshire, especially during times where budgets are under increasing pressure.”
He added: “I would like to see as many Fenland charities benefit from this as possible, and would encourage all those interested to apply.”
The vast majority of charities are eligible and any number of organisations can receive a donation. The only costs involved are a nominal administrative fee to the Charity Technology Exchange.
