Unwanted laptops and iPads required for New Forest junior schools

Unwanted New Forest laptops and iPads still needed

Lots of laptops have been donated already but more are still needed for local junior schools

Urgent Appeal Laptop iPadRecap of the scheme: local junior schools still need laptops and iPads for pupils who don't have them for home schooling; meanwhile many of us have no longer needed laptops and iPads, hanging around and creating dusty clutter in our homes. So the idea was conceived, by Lymington Rotary and Lymington Community Centre, to

Update 10 March. Laptops are now being delivered to local schools

Three local groups have been working together, The Rotary Club of Lymington, IT Friends and the Lymington Community Association and their aim is to make sure that each local school child in Primary or Junior education has a device at home that they can use to complete their schoolwork.

Different local IT companies have been amazingly generous with their time and this week James Peacock and Max Stone at Peacock Computers Lymington Ltd have wiped and refurbished the laptops which have been donated at the Lymington Community Centre and prepared them free of charge for the children to be able to use at home and in class.

Up to last Wednesday, 30 laptops and 10 IPads, have been delivered to Peacock Computers Lymington from the Community Centre for them to prepare them ready to dispatch to local schools. We hope that these will supply at least the current home-schooling needs. 

Previously IT Friends delivered over 35 devices to Pennington Church of England Junior School.

St Josephs SchoolOn behalf of Lymington Community Centre and Lymington Rotary, Barbara Murphy presented refurbished laptops to Head Teacher Katherine Jones at Beaulieu Village Primary School and Head Teacher Ellie Prince at Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Primary School. 

If any of the laptops or devices are not useable, Peacock Computers Lymington are wiping them and giving them to the Society of St James who dismantle them and re-use bits and are helping vulnerable people experiencing homelessness, problems with alcohol and substance use and other complex needs to change their lives.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the people who have donated to this urgent cause.   More laptops are still needed by our local school children.

Laptops can be dropped of at the Lymington Community Centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9.00am - 1.00pm.

Please spread this message far and wide!

Please share this article with your friends - we are sure there are lots of old laptops and iPads lurking in home cupboards waiting to be sent on to a deserving new home!

Thank you so much for your support!
