Word has come around that local schools are running out of laptops to lend to students to enable their remote learning during this shutdown.
One of the Forest Hill Society team has begun refurbishing laptops & desktops for SE23 children in need of remote learning capability especially after advice that one school will have run out of donated kit by lunchtime today and still has a deficit of about 200.
If you have an old lap top, desk top or even tablet lying unused in a cupboard or drawer would you be willing to donate it? We will collect, reconfigure, re-install and distribute where needed. Base requirement is that it has a webcam and a power supply, and is powerful enough to run Zoom. Every one means another child is linked in to remote teaching.
Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Special thanks to local John Doherty who is doing the reconfiguring and to @clausy who has stepped up his daily cycling to collect them.
Big THANK YOU to those who have already made contributions or are about to. Ten were donated today and a further six are already scheduled for pickup tomorrow.
