In February we also joined the scheme to provide laptops or tablets to children.
Hexham Rotary wanted to help children who could not afford a laptop to benefit from distance learning and joined in a project to find redundant laptops and tablets among their members and friends and family. This initiative was led by Rotarian Ben Herdan and we joined the Laptops for Kids initiative. Donations of unwanted devices will be renovated, repurposed and distributed to needy children through the Partnership scheme to their schools. Ben donated two of his laptops and dropped them off at the Co-op in Corbridge The manager told him that 24 laptops had already been donated and sent on from the Co op to the Partnership which is responsible for renovation and distribution – a lot of this will have been as a result of our activity. Our photo shows Ben handing over the laptops.
