Our Laptops for Schools Campaign

It has been much publicised in the media in the last few days, that many of our school children are unable to access their online lessons, either to learn or to submit their work, or to conduct research on the internet, because they have no computer at home.

Our schools are doing a fantastic job, somehow managing to teach the children of key workers who have to be in school, and at the same time, provide a curriculum online for the children who are home-schooling.

There must be many people in our community who have recently upgraded their home computers, or indeed their office computers, and now have unused laptops or tablets.

If you have an unused laptop which you would like to donate to a school for use by a child without access to the internet, please get in touch with Yate Rotary Club. We are working with the BBC Computers for Schools campaign, and with Business2Schools, a national charity enabling a network of donors and schools.

We can collect your device from you, and have the expertise within our group to be able to wipe it clean. Then we can pass it to a local school to have the correct programs loaded, and the school will identify a child or older student who needs it.

If you can offer a laptop or tablet, please get in touch via the website: or telephone Marian Gilpin on 01454 321323.
