Salford Community Media Partnership, or SCMP, was a brilliant project set up at the Langworthy Cornerstone before the BBC moved to Salford, to train up and engage the community with media.

SCMP produced community films, magazines and radio shows through training workshops...and then the BBC arrived at Media City, with the rest being non-engagement, non-financing history.

Now, all the SCMP equipment is lying in cupboards so the Cornerstone is having a 'Surplus equipment dispersal', with all kit available either free or for a donation. Up for grabs are...

3 Fuji FinePix F480 digital cameras free

1 Nikon D40 digital Camera (no charger) free

2 Sony Handcam DCR-DVD 106e camcorders (one with AC Adapter/charger one without) free

1 Nikon D60 digital Camera (no charger) donation required
      
1 Sony HD Video Camera HVR-ZE1 with charger and tripod donation required

1 Imation D20 Disc Publisher DVD duplicator - USB 2.0 with cables, software and a large pile of white top CD/DVDs donation required

"All equipment is taken 'at your own risk', but it's all been PAT tested fairly recently" states the Cornerstone "All items working (in that they turn on!) but other than that they are 'as seen'...

"We will draw lots to decide who gets what, but weight it in favour of our priorities... local community groups and organisations; then Salford residents, especially youngsters who want to learn or for a hobby" it adds.
