A new school in Brackenfell is benefitting from a donation of refurbished computers from Checkers and Just PCs. 

Vredekloof Primary School did not have the financial resources to buy equipment for their computer lab, which has been standing empty since the school opened its doors for the first time in January this year. 

"When we were approached by the school for a donation of computers, we looked no further than Checkers as one of the businesses that serve the community of Vredekloof. We refurbished the computers [that Checkers provided] and now the learners of Vredekloof Primary School can enjoy learning IT skills."

“We are very grateful and feel blessed to have been chosen by Just PCs for this generous donation and it is heart-warming to see a household name like Checkers giving back to the community.”
