Thule's Haverhill site donates 70 laptop cases to one of the town's schools




A Haverhill business has donated 70 of its laptop bags to one of the schools in the town for its students to use.

The bags were gifted to Churchill Academy by Thule, a company of worldwide renown that specialises in outdoor and transportation products and has a site in Falconer Road.

The laptop bags were presented to the school’s headteacher, Chris Komodromos, by Marcus Hunt, Thule’s European and Asia distribution centre and Haverhill site manager.

Speaking on behalf of Thule, Jo Shevlin said: “In the past we usually get tins and food on site for Reach Community Projects (Haverhill Foodbank) and they come and collect it.

“With everyone not working on site and working from home it was rather difficult to do that and co-ordinate it so we did something different..

“All our offices and sites are doing something similar so it was down to us to see who we would like to donate these bags to, so we thought we could give it to a school.”
