Around 100 vulnerable adults from across Suffolk, including at centres in Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill, are to gain free educational support thanks to a council’s donation of old laptops.

Robert Everitt, St Edmundsbury’s cabinet member for families and communities, has handed over seven used laptops to the Phoenix Rising Community Interest Company.

Phoenix Rising is an independent educational provider that works with vulnerable adults and marginalised groups across Suffolk, including at the Info Bar and Bury Hub in Bury St Edmunds.
