A Momentum Skills project based in Kilmarnock has received a boost with a donation of £1,000 worth of new computer equipment from a local businesswoman.

The personal development project – run by not-for-profit organisation Momentum Skills for people across Ayrshire who have experienced substance misuse issues - is now the proud owner of a new desktop machine, complete with software and insurance cover. 

The new equipment was handed over by business owner Amanda Currie at Momentum Skills’ project in King Street in Kilmarnock where the project is based.

Yvonne Skilling, who works at Momentum Skills in Kilmarnock, said: “We are delighted at receiving this generous donation. The new PC will make a huge difference in supporting the service users and staff of the project with greater efficiency and creativity.”

Amanda Currie, who is from Kilmarnock and is the owner of Ardenconnel Services in Alexandria, said: “Ardenconnel Services is pleased to support smaller, local charities and organisations.

“Knowing the difference that Momentum Skills makes in the local community and understanding how up-to-date computer hardware and software could benefit the Kilmarnock project made our choice to donate the equipment easy.

“We hope Momentum Skills has many productive and happy years use of the equipment.”
