Progress update on the laptops project.


Since the middle of last year the small project team drawn from Club members and supporters, together with the generous assistance of Micro-Smith, a small local IT company, have achieved the following:

·        Repaired 159 donated laptops; Purchased 13 new Chrome books (with a further 60 more in the process of being sourced; Supplied 28 refurbished desktop computers. All these devices have been given to pupils across six Newport High Schools identified by the schools as being urgently in need.

·        We have also secured the provision of 80 new Chromebooks by Virgin Media to pupils in three of those schools

·        In order to finance this, grants totalling over £16,000 have been secured from national and local charities, together with grants from Rotary at local and District level

·        The total number of laptops provided by Laptops4HomeLearning to pupils in need is 355.

Thank you to everyone involved.
