Thank You For Helping Us Raise £37,000 For Computers For Kids

Back in January, schools were told to close once again in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19. So schools sent students home and attempted to teach remotely. However, it soon became apparent that this wasn’t as simple as it sounded. Whilst the requirements for remote learning are very basic, families struggled. Often, families will have just one suitable device in the household and if you take into consideration the parents working from home as well, it’s not enough to go around. And think about the cost of buying a laptop for each person in the house, especially for larger families with 3 or more children. It’s a lot of money. The result of this means children were missing out on vital learning, through no fault of their own, or their parents, or the schools!

So we decided to help. We started off by donating 20 laptops to some local schools by our offices. But soon, we found out the need was much greater than we imagined, so we set up some fundraising pages on JustGiving to raise money to buy more laptops and donate them to more local schools.

We are so pleased to say that with the help of our local communities in London, we have raised £37,737!

All this money has gone to providing laptops to local schools across London. That’s over 170 laptops and tablets for children who needed them.

Here’s just some of the schools your donations have gone to:

Now children are going back to school they can start to return to some sort of normality again. But schools in London are still in need of fundraising like this to accommodate their students both in and out of the classroom. We encourage everyone to continue to help with causes just like this, so we can ensure our children get the education they deserve.
We’d like to thank everyone in the local community who has donated to the cause. The support from local communities around our four branches, Westminster, Canary Wharf, Southbank and Battersea has been truly amazing and we can’t thank you enough!
