Seriously, they’re not as old as this – but we had to get your attention somehow.
Lismore City Council is upgrading its computer stock and plans to give away about 20 ageing but still operational machines to community and not-for-profit groups in the coming month.
But you will need to be quick if you want to score one for your organisation.
Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell says there are around 20 surplus desktop PCs that the council has earmarked for the sector as a gesture of thanks.
‘It’s council’s way of acknowledging the not-for-profit sector and community organisations who focus their resources on the community, on meeting the human need that’s out there, which doesn’t always leave a lot left over for infrastructure,’ she said.
‘These groups do much with so little and this is a small way in which council can say thank you for the enormous contribution they make within the Lismore LGA. Without them and the services they provide, our society would be the poorer. We owe them deep gratitude and thanks.’
Successful applicants will be notified and provided with their computer by the end of August.
To apply for a second-hand computer, fill out the entry form on Council’s website www.lismore.nsw.gov.au. Applications close Wednesday, 25 June.
