Laptops for Kids features in an article in Wired, where David Richards explains how businesses in Sheffield are donating their old tech for use by school pupils. Though some devices may be too old for use by companies, they are perfect for school children. This is a scalable model and already being rolled out in other areas of the UK.
Lowfield Primary in Sheffield receives a delivery of laptops to be distributed to pupils who, until now, have been unable to access remote learning.
Can your business or organisation help by providing a drop-off point for laptop donations in South Yorkshire or further afield? Please get in touch if so and we can provide further details.
We are talking to major employers, laptop manufacturers and mobile network operators in our campaign to close the digital divide in Doncaster.
Donors include DLA Piper, the UK's largest law firm, Benchmark Consult, a leading tech recruiter, and local charities.
Please do join us and help in any way you can. To pledge your support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
