HELP! PLEASE DONATE YOUR OLD LAPTOP TO HELP STUDENTS

Covid 19 has had a devastating effect on children’s education. Whilst many pupils have been able to access online learning and support from their schools during Lockdown, there are too many who have not received this because they do not have the necessary IT equipment.

NEED YOUR HELP

 Do you have an old Laptop you no longer use? 

We will fund the costs of turning your old, donated laptops into Chromebooks. We will then give them to local schools to distribute to those pupils, who they know, will most benefit from the equipment. For security reasons we are advising you to remove the hard drive before donating. If you are unable to do this we will remove it for you and return the hard drive to you. 

To arrange collection of your old laptops please contact :
