Out of School learning – Laptops Appeal for Haxby & Wigginton

todayJanuary 14, 2021 8

share close

Technology needed for local school children, currently unable to attend their school, to continue to receive the level of education they are entitled to. There are, unfortunately, a number of youngsters who are having difficulty in this regard due entirely to their lack of access to suitable laptops or similar devices. Our local schools are finding it difficult to satisfy this need. Discussions which have been had with an administrator of one of our local schools, that four (4) laptops would be of great help to them in maintaining the level of support the children need.

An appeal has gone out to give urgent and serious consideration to help our local children by offering to supply as many items of equipment as an organisation can reasonably afford. These children are our future and without doubt they are, and, will continue to suffer without access to such equipment, which most will no doubt take for granted.

It is appreciated that these are difficult times but if businesses can look at your reserves and give consideration to helping and supporting such a worthy cause. If we can raise the immediate purchase of 12 laptops (4 to each of our local Haxby and Wigginton Schools), think of the great benefit our children will receive and the good that you will have achieved.

If you can help in any way please contact
