KCS partners with Bookmark to support St. Mary’s Ukrainian school in the UK

Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS), an ERP and business management software provider for distributors, wholesalers and retailers in the tile sector, recently donated 15 PCs to St. Mary’s Ukrainian School.

These PCs help fill the educational needs of young children who have arrived with their families from Ukraine and need to continue their education in the UK.

This donation, facilitated through KCS’s close links with the reading charity, Bookmark, seeks to help children from all backgrounds learn and develop their reading skills. KCS is proud to repurpose its PCs for children in need, and believes the more it can deliver, the better. “We appreciate that it’s challenging for the families to get hold of the technology needed to support learning,” said Ian Bendelow, CEO of Kerridge Commercial Systems. “Therefore, we’re delighted to be able to help with equipment for a number of schemes in the UK over the last few years and, with the Bookmark organisation, help in this specific and very important cause as well.”

Bookmark is a literacy charity founded in 2018 by Sharon Pindar to help children to read. When the charity learned of the KCS initiative, it contacted St. Mary’s School in Holland Park, London, to check if it could use the PCs that KCS wanted to donate.

There was a great need for additional equipment, so KCS arranged for 15 core desktop PCs for delivery, along with monitors, keyboards and Windows software installed. “Everyone at St. Mary’s has greatly appreciated the IT equipment delivered by KCS,” said Abigail Hanley, senior marketing and communications officer at Bookmark.

“Sustainability and closing the digital skills gap are key values for KCS,” says Neil Abraham, director of cloud and IT operations at KCS. “That’s why we’re delighted to repurpose these high-spec PCs for use within St. Mary’s. We hope students and teachers use them to achieve great results.”
