Rotary Donate Laptops to Leigh Schools - January 2021

Learning from home has become the norm for many children during lockdown, but not everyone has a computer, putting youngsters into a seriously disadvantaged position. The Rotary Club of Leigh decided to help local schools with this problem and their President, John Bullough told the Journal, “Local people kindly donated around £3500 over the Christmas period, when we took Santa’s Sleigh around the streets, so we decided to use that money to buy 17 new laptops. These have been given to 4 schools who wanted laptops to lend out to children who didn’t have any computer facility for home learning. The schools were Leigh St Johns, Leigh St Gabriel’s, Christ Church CE and Leigh CE Primary. We would like to thank Advanced Computers on Chapel Street, who set up the laptops for home learning and kindly gave a generous discount.”

Head teacher Clare Oxborough from Leigh CE Primary said, “We were absolutely delighted when Leigh Rotary contacted us, having heard of our need for laptops. Their gift will be incredibly helpful, enabling pupils to work remotely and submit their work back to the school. Rotary also provided USB sticks for all the pupils in the top class, which they will put to good use in their studies.”

On hearing about the donation, local MP James Grundy commented, “This is a wonderful gesture from the Leigh Rotary Club, which will be an invaluable help to youngsters at this difficult time.”
