Supporting Laptops for Schools
The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the impact on children’s education of not having reliable access to technology. In recognition of this, we have donated 14 laptops to Bishop Stortford-based ITVET’s not-for-profit Laptops for Schools programme.
The Laptops for Schools programme takes computers that are no longer suitable for business use, but which still have plenty of life left in them for learning and education purposes. The technicians at ITVET donate their time and labour to ‘FreePurposing’ these laptops before distributing them to charities and schools in need.
Andrew Flannagan, our Managing Partner, said: “Donating our old technology to a programme like this instead of throwing it away is quite simply a no-brainer. It is incredible to see what ITVET has achieved with this vital programme, and we are delighted to have been able to contribute to the cause.”
Richard Fountain of ITVET commented: “We are so grateful to companies that donate their laptops to our Laptops for Schools project. Each donation allows us to FreePurpose more devices. We can really drive value from the precious components within our devices, rather than simply sending them to landfill. By donating to charities and schools the scheme also provides digital inclusion to those who don’t have reliable access to devices for their learning.”
