A national electrical retailer has shown its generosity by donating gaming equipment to a charity in Bury to revitalise its popular gaming club.

Bee Inclusive, a community hub based in the heart of Bury, provides social opportunities for SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) children and young adults up to the age of 25.

It offering a safe space for both parents and children.

The charity also runs BURY2GETHER, an award-winning community interest company managed by SEND parents.

They were awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service last year.

Director of Bee Inclusive, Emma Scott, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the donation from AO and for Chris's hard work in sourcing the equipment.

"We are delighted to be equipped to revive our gaming clubs and give children with SEND in Bury the opportunity to use this technology to have fun and make connections whilst playing their favourite games, such as Minecraft, Roblox and Fortnite.

"We're sure this will be a hit with everyone."

With Bolton-based AO’s donation of unused and new equipment, the volunteers at Bee Inclusive hope that their gaming club will grow in popularity with the new technology being able to stream the young people’s favourite games.

AO's IT asset manager, Chris Heywood, said: "I’m delighted that I was able to help such a lovely charity that is so close to home.

"I really hope the children enjoy the new equipment, and I’ll be sure to pay a visit for a game of Fortnite soon!”

He added: “Technology is revolutionary and has no borders as it can be tailored to everyone.

"It’s amazing to see how gaming tech can not only be used for enjoyment, but can also be used to help people communicate and develop in many different aspects of life.”
