Cranfield University has donated more than 1,200 PCs to specialist charity Computer Aid International.

The IT charity professionally refurbishes unwanted computers to extend their life by a further four years. The Cranfield PCs will be donated to community projects in Tanzania, Chile, Ethiopia and Sudan.

"Computer Aid ensures that any working equipment was re-used rather than recycled and we knew none of our equipment would end up on a scrap heap," said Gio Lusignani, director of IT at Cranfield University.

Computer Aid founder and chief executive Tony Roberts said that by donating equipment, all donors are guaranteed compliance with government legislation about e-waste.

In 2008 Cranfield University donated nearly 350 PCs and monitors to Computer Aid.
