A SocialBox.Biz blog post update by Age UK Enfield, May 27 2020.
This partnership with Age UK London has forged changes in the lives of many, and we are looking forward to seeing how many more clients receive laptops this year many of whom live on pension credit and can not afford any kind of computer. To partner for donations with items from you office that are no longer needed but still useful, please contact the SocialBox.Biz team today!

“Our computer has recently stopped working and my husband has got Parkinson’s, he used to love speaking with his family in Italy through skype. Now we have this new laptop we can connect with our family in Italy once again and also communicate see our friends and family.
Thank you so much for giving us this computer, it’s so kind.” Maria
“Thank you for the Laptop, the last one I had broke and the keys were coming off. I had it for a long time but it lasted well. It was a Toshiba, which is great as it’s the same as the new one Age UK Enfield have given me.
Even though this is a terrible thing that’s happened, its nice how everybody has rallied around to help. It’s fine if you speak to one person a day, but if you go 4 days without speaking to someone you start to feel really isolated. It has really brought people together, I haven’t spoken to some people for 50yrs and we have started conversations on Facebook.” Nick
