WE CARE ABOUT THE THINGS THAT MATTER.
Not about the things that don’t.

JUST LIKE YOU.

On January 6th 2021, the world suddenly became a harder place for parents of primary school age children.

We have put together a group of wonderful people to help get free laptops to primary schools.

Help us in any way you can.

I NEED A LAPTOP FOR MY CHILD

We know it’s terribly frustrating to have to magic up a laptop for each child. Click here to register your need.

Give your child Tara’s love and explain that we will try as hard as we can to get them one the Chromebooks that have been donated by the immense kindness of others.

IN A NUTSHELL
Converting a windows laptop into a chromebook is simpler than it looks thanks to the CloudReady software that Google kindly made available for free to the world in Dec 2020.

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!

I HAVE AN OLD LAPTOP THAT I'D LIKE TO DONATE

We all have one somewhere. Find it and click here to register your donation.

If your laptop  starts up, has a power supply and is under 10 years old, please, please donate it to us. A child somewhere will be smiling a lot.

IN A NUTSHELL
Do you have an old Windows PC or Chromebook at home that you are not using any more?  We bet you do!  Almost everyone has.  In a cupboard, in the attic or under the bed.

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.

I'D LIKE TO BECOME A LOCAL SUPERHERO

Anyone can do it. Very very little technical experience required. Click here to find out more.

So far, 21 superheroes across the UK have joined Tara and are doing this very easy conversion and getting Chromebooks to desperate parents in their area.

IN A NUTSHELL
Converting a windows laptop into a chromebook is simpler than it looks thanks to the CloudReady software that Google kindly made available for free to the world in Dec 2020.

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.
