redheadPR and a red Dalek showed their support for Swindon’s Museum of Computing’s 10th Anniversary when hundreds of people flocked to an event, sponsored by redheadPR, to celebrate ten years of Swindon’s Museum of Computing.
The event which took place at the Central Library in Swindon on Monday 8 July took the form of a networking and fundraising evening with kind donors and sponsors helping to raise over £300 in a raffle prize draw.

Sara Tye, founder and managing director of redheadPR, said: “It was a fantastic evening enjoyed by every guest and we were all drawn to the Dalek who was very keen to be in on the photographs.
"We were very proud to sponsor this event as we believe in the importance of having this museum in our town. We salute those volunteers who have kept it thriving for the last decade. We know the next ten years will be even better.”
The award winning museum is devoted to the history of computing and digital development; it was the first physical museum of its kind in the UK dedicated to the history of computing.
The museum’s reputation was further enhanced in 2012 when it was awarded full accreditation from the Arts Council England.
It hosts a wide range of events including a weekly children’s computer club, where they learn to program, build robots and take part in various scientific experiments. This has proved so popular there is now a waiting list.
The museum also runs the Swindon Hackspace where people with an interest in technology can get together and share ideas and resources to build, programme and learn.
