The Highland Branch of the Yorkshire Building Society donates to Leonard Cheshire House to purchase digital equipment to help service users get online

The staff and residents of Leonard Cheshire House in Inverness will benefit from the donation from the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation.

A Highland branch of the Yorkshire Building Society hopes to improve the lives of local adults with disabilities through a generous charitable donation to purchase digital equipment.

Leonard Cheshire’s Cheshire House has been awarded £1,911 to enable service users in the Highland capital to get PCs for stimulating activities such as online games, puzzles and YouTube.

They will also be able to go online to research projects, shop online and attend health appointments via video call.

Stuart Robertson, Leonard Cheshire Director for Scotland, said: “We are extremely grateful to the Yorkshire Building Society Charitable Foundation for their extremely generous donation.

“The past few years have demonstrated the enormous benefits that technology can bring to the lives of people with disabilities.”

Leeann Keenan, Director of the Society’s Inverness branch, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Leonard Cheshire in our community with this donation.

“The work they do to support adults with disabilities in Inverness gives them a real benefit in their lives, and we hope this funding will support people for years to come.”
