"Ink to Help Think"
This project is now finished
With the country in its 3rd lockdown we dedicated a pot of funding to our "Ink To Help Think" project.
The project was aimed to assist families who need some financial support in providing ink cartridges and paper to assist with home schooling.
We understand that the cost of ink can sometimes be a huge burden and with ongoing financial constraints some families may not be able to afford to purchase ink for their printers.
Welcome to project.... "Ink to help think"
As a group we opened to applications from families that lived within the areas of Snaith, Cowick and Rawcliffe to apply for support.
We really wanted to make sure that the children living in our community had access to the facilities to help them continue to learn whilst not in their usual teaching environment
All applications were individually reviewed by our board of directors. If the application was approved, then we provided the applicant with: 1 black and 1 colour cartridge compatible with their printer, as well as a ream of A4 paper, some families may have required further paper due to number or students in the household.
The items were purchased through one of our suppliers and delivered to the applicant by one of our volunteers.
Applications were only accepted from residents within one of the following areas: Snaith, East Cowick, West Cowick, Rawcliffe and Rawcliffe Bridge; regardless of where the children attend school or college.
