Laptops for kids
Help children who need to learn from home
Local schools need your old laptops. As we face a long Covid-constrained winter, many children will face a period of self-isolation and having to learn from home. With parents probably already working from home and perhaps brothers and sisters doing the same, many families will find there aren’t enough screens to go round.
We want your old Laptops
Please give your old laptops to the Parish Council. Our volunteers will wipe the disk securely (though we advise you to do the same) and load new lightweight software before giving your laptops to local schools. The schools can then lend the laptops to children who need a screen to do their schoolwork.
Call us, we’ll collect
Simply call the Village Support Group on 0300 033 1783 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll arrange to pick up your old laptop and put it to good use. If your laptop is very old and beyond use, we’ll either cannibalise it for parts or send it for recycling.
