City in the Community have announced a three-year partnership with ICP Networks.
To kick off the exciting deal, star international striker Alvaro Negredo joined young people from Ashbury Meadows Primary School to celebrate the donation of 45 x 7” tablets.
The world champion’s forward, who is likely to be heading to Brazil for the World Cup this summer, surprised the young people during their Spanish lesson – delivered for the first time ever on tablet computers – at the Etihad stadium.
The tablets will also be used to deliver health and educational projects in primary schools across Manchester from January 2014.
This is the first of a number of initiatives made possible by the partnership with ICP Networks, all of which will aid CITC as they support the most in-need communities across Manchester.
ICP Networks MD Matt Archer commented: “ICP Networks have grown over the past ten years to become one of the premier solutions providers for networking and IT equipment in the UK and Europe.
Now we want to support the community that has supported us - and are proud to sign a three-year deal with CITC to celebrate their first decade of success.
We are delighted to be joining the Manchester City team and are especially proud to support theCITC program. It is in essence everything that Manchester City set out to be when they launched the Football Club in 1880, it is a support vehicle for the local community and we are proud to be able to join the team. The work thatCITC carry out in support of local people is crucial.”
Mike Green, Head of CITC, said: “this is just the start of what is sure to be a great partnership with ICP networks organisations over the next three years.
The prospect of delivering our health and education projects on the new tablets is hugely exciting and this will transform the way our young people learn. The support of partners like ICP Networks is invaluable to City in the Community’s work in Greater Manchester.”
