Ripon Charities In Ink Cartridges Heaven
Charities and volunteer groups in Ripon will be able to rely on a regular flow of office supplies for some time to come - after receiving £4,000 worth of ink cartridges from a local firm.
Ripon's Mayor, David Elsy, recently visited the distribution centre of Wolseley, a heating and plumbing products supplier, when he received the donation of new HP ink cartridges.
The cartridges had been collected from Wolseley branches across the Ripon area.
"It was a pleasure to accept these printer cartridges on behalf of charity and voluntary organisations in the area," the mayor told the Ripon Gazette.
"I will be offering them to appropriate offices in the Ripon area and I'm sure they will be very welcome."
Charities without a computer in their offices may be interested to hear about a new government scheme to launch affordable PCs.
There are plans to unveil £98 computers to encourage people who do not have one to go out and buy one.
