Sawbridgeworth computer firm Hardsoft offers vans to charities in lockdown
A Sawbridgeworth computer firm has logged on to the spirit of lockdown by launching initiatives to support the community.
HardSoft Computers, based at The Square, responded to the first lockdown in March by providing free laptops to Harlow secondary school Passmores Academy.
Last month the company, run by brothers Phil and Andy Morgan, posted a message on the Sawbridgeworth Facebook group.
Digital marketing manager Sharon Stephens said: “Because of Covid restrictions most of our HardSoft engineers are working from home, so our Mercedes vans aren’t being used all the time.
“If any charities local to Sawbridgeworth involved with helping those affected by Covid-19, or maybe local eateries helping with free holiday meals, could use a van for a few hours/a day, please let us know on 020 7111 1643. They are all insured, you’d just have to cover fuel.”
Sharon told the Indie that supporting charities was a very big part of the company.
HardSoft regularly backs causes including the Dream Factory and Stand By Me, and Phil is involved with Grove Cottage, with the firm sponsoring its Santa Dash.
Sharon added HardSoft had a shop in the town centre which, as it would be left empty for a few months, could be used by a charity for free. Contact HardSoft Computers on 020 7111 1643.
