Lions laptop helps Barnstaple charity
Barnstaple Lions Club helps Freedom Social Projects with new computer.
BARNSTAPLE Lions has given crucial ‘IT’ support to a well known local charity.
The club has donated �500 to the Freedom Social Project, based at the Freedom Centre in Barnstaple, to enable it to buy a new laptop.
The charity carries out a variety of projects to help people who may be homeless, suffering from addiction or problems.
The computer is a vital tool, enabling staff and clients to use it for a variety of applications from applying for housing or jobs and searching for information to writing letters or creating CVs.

When the Lions visited earlier in the year and asked if the charity needed anything, a laptop was at the head of the list, as the existing model was several years old and simply not up to the job.
Freedom staff Deb Parsons and John Phillipson at the charity said they were grateful to the Lions for their generous donation.
