Camp Hill Young Persons Holiday Scheme (CHYPS) was recently awarded a free laptop from Warwickshire County Council’s Annual Community Computer Scheme.  The laptop is expected to prove very helpful to the CHYPS Scheme in providing trips for young people in the area.

This year the Community Computer Scheme has once again been a success, with a total of 126 laptops being awarded to community groups across the county.  In the north of the county – 68 recycled laptops have been awarded – 41 to groups in Nuneaton and Bedworth.

The awards were made after community groups, charities, voluntary organisations and town & parish councils across Warwickshire were invited to apply for a free laptop in support of the services they provide to communities.

Besides the CHYPS scheme other beneficiaries of the awards included Hartshill Community Library, Stockingford Community Centre and Nuneaton and Bedworth District Mencap Society.

The laptops were handed out at Nuneaton Town Hall on 3rd November.  The CHYPS laptop was received by Kazim Datoo from Pride in Camp Hill.  The successful applicants were able to meet with County Councillors, Warwickshire County Council Community Safety Team and the Locality Working Services to receive congratulations and tell them about the work of their various groups.

The CHYPS Scheme provides trips for young people on the estate who would otherwise not be able to get away.  For more information on the CHYPS Scheme call the Pride in Camp Hill office on 024 7639 9093 and ask for Mona.
