Channel 4: Families turning to charity for help with computers

Home Affairs Correspondent, Darshna Soni, met a family in Sheffield who have received a laptop from the Laptops for Kids campaign. The device was delivered by James Thomson, who is working with students and volunteers at The Sheffield College to prepare donated devices for distribution.

Mr Robinson explains how difficult it was for his daughters to continue with their learning without a laptop when schools closed. Now the sisters are able to access remote education on a suitable device - something made possible only by local businesses and individuals generously donating their unused tech to the campaign.
