Edinburgh based UCanDoIT tutor Jim Benstead ran the half marathon and raised £650 which was twice his target of £300.

He said "I ran the Edinburgh Half Marathon for two assistive technology charities that do great work in Edinburgh and across Scotland to get people with disabilities online. PassITOn refurbishes computers and gives them to people with disabilities; UCanDoIT provides one-to-one, at-home computer tuition to people with disabilities."

UCanDoIT and PassITOn have worked together for many years and look forward to future collaborations.
