A pair of north east Wales businesses have teamed up to donate computers to two Flintshire schools.

PR agency Outwrite PR and IT firm MSC Technology have supplied one Apple Mac computer to Ysgol Bryn Coch and two to The Alun School.

Outwrite PR, based in Mold along with the two schools, had three spare computers after investing in laptops for its team to facilitate home working.

Its IT company MSC Technology, based in Wrexham, then donated its time to bring the machines up to scratch and ensure they were in full working order.

Outwrite has an existing relationship with both schools after previously donating items such as VR headsets and furniture, with the firm also set to deliver a careers talk at the Alun School in the autumn.

Ysgol Bryn Coch deputy headteacher Andy Williams said: “We can’t thank Outwrite and MSC Technology enough.

“We have fantastic relationships with businesses in the area, and actions such as these make a huge difference to our pupils.

“Digital competence is a key area of the new Curriculum for Wales and as such it will get plenty of use.”

The Alun School headteacher Jane Cooper said: “The generosity of companies like Outwrite and MSC Technology is vital for the school.

“Partnerships with businesses across Flintshire are incredibly beneficial to our pupils, whether it’s donations like this or work experience placements.

“The computers will be used religiously by our pupils as part of their studies.”

Outwrite’s administrator Jill Lloyd said: “The agency switched to laptops due to hybrid working, and some of our computers were then deemed surplus to requirements.

“We always look to support the community where possible, and it made sense to donate them to Ysgol Bryn Coch and the Alun School.

“We hope the pupils enjoy working on them as part of their studies.”

MSC Technology technician Adam Davies said: “When Outwrite explained what they were looking to do, we jumped at the chance to help.

“Giving back and supporting organisations are among our top priorities and we’re thrilled to have been a part of this.”

Outwrite’s clients include housing association Grŵp Cynefin, Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK, and specialist residential care provider Meddyg Care.

The agency specialises in integrated PR and SEO (search engine optimisation), crisis PR, online reputation management and social media training.
