Happy New Year!
As we enter our third national lockdown, schools have been closed.
Ofcom have said that 1.78 million children across the country do not have access to laptops / tablets or the means to learn from home.
We have been in contact with local schools in East Anglia and they are in urgent need of laptops to ensure their pupils can continue their education at home.
In response, this page has been set up to raise money to buy laptops for these schools and we would be very grateful for any donations.
The recommended laptop is a Google Chromebook each costing £199.
Raising £2000 would provide 10 pupils with a laptop which would be an amazing start to helping these schools and pupils during these trying and difficult times.
Schools would also appreciate donations of any old laptops or tablets. Here are some useful links from BBC Make a Difference site:
Vodafone in particular have a Great Tech Appeal and will donate your devices with 6 months free data
(Please note that we are aware the government is assisting pupils but this is taking time and some pupils are slipping through the cracks).
Thank you so much for any help you are able to provide!
Please also spread the word!
(A local Suffolk lawyer will oversee the spending of funds.)
