Miyay Birray Youth Service have received a much needed donation of 11 second hand computers from Boyce Chartered Accountants that will be added to their homework centre.

Between 15 and 20 students, mostly from Moree Public School, use the homework centre two afternoons a week.

"We had some computers in our homework centre but there wasn't enough for one each for the students," Miyay Birray Youth Service CEO Darrel Smith said.

Boyce contaced Billy Poulos to let him know about their spare computers, who then put the call out to Miyay Birray to see if they could use them.

"We turn over our computers probably a bit quicker than their useful life," Boyce director Jono Hart said.

"It was just good to know that the Moree community can have access to them to help with their education facilities."

Mr Smith said they'd love to take the computers and they will look at setting them up over the next few days and be ready to go next week.

Mr Hart credited Mr Poulos and Mr Smith for making sure their old computers didn't go to waste.

"We'd normally look to see if someone in the community could find them but there hasn't always been that link to find where they're needed most. That's where Bill and Darrel came in," Mr Hart said.

Needless to say, Mr Smith is thrilled about the outcome.

"It was just really good that the company was thinking about the community. That once they upgraded their computers, they thought about giving them to people and organisations that needed them," Mr Smith said.
