WE CARE ABOUT THE THINGS THAT MATTER.
Not about the things that don’t.
JUST LIKE YOU.
With the government imposing a further lockdown on the 6th January 2021, Primary School children suddenly had to study online and from home. Many young families with multiple children suddenly found that they needed a Chromebook computer for each of their children. We can only imagine the stress and difficulty in finding even more money to buy those Chromebooks when the world of employment is so uncertain. Many parents are in an impossible situation.
Staring in a little village called Helpston, near Peterborough, we have rapidly recruited the help of wonderful individuals across the village, area and nation. Each on volunteering a great deal of their time to helping get Chromebooks into the hands of desperate parents.
If you need a Chromebook for your primary school child or grandchild, please register their need here. We can’t guarantee that we will be able to help but we will try our very hardest. At the very least, you’ll get a nice email and a smile from Tara!
If it’s under 10 years old, I can probably convert it into a Chromebook suitable for a local primary school child in desperate need for one.
All we have to ask is that it will power on and that you have a power supply.
Time is the issue here. We need to use our old laptops to ensure the continuing education of our young children. Every day makes a difference to their life chances. So please find that laptop and donate it fast!
Register you interest to donate here and we will be in contact to see how we can get it collected, converted and donated to a needy child at home.
After the necessary 2 minutes of faffing around to get in the windows laptop ‘BIOS’ screen, the conversion takes about 30 minutes and I have now managed to get a production line going where I do 6 at a time on my dining table.
However, as the volume of laptops ramp up, there is always a need for other to help doing this. I would be grateful for the help and you would get to see Tara regularly to guarantee a smile!
If you have a little technical knowledge and can help, please take a look at this in more detail and I will be in contact to see how we can work together.
