Drop in point for laptop donations
Peacock computers are working with the New Forest Basics Bank to help refurbish & distribute old laptops to Children in the local area, who don’t have access to a computer for their home-schooling, the BBC have this to say about it:
Last summer local BBC radio stations helped members of the public donate thousands of old laptops and tablets for schoolchildren to use across England. For those pupils, who were sharing phones at home while learning in lockdown, it made a huge difference.
With schools now closed again we’re once more asking you to help those pupils still in need.
Perhaps you received new laptops, tablets or mobiles for Christmas or you may have old devices you don’t need anymore?
We are working to join the dots between your devices and the children who may need them the most. We are sharing details of companies and charities who can help us achieve our aim of getting devices to pupils.
So, if you’ve got an old laptop computer that’s no longer needed and collecting dust why not show your support through these difficult times and donate it?
We’ll refurbish the laptop as needed:
Give it a new HDD drive, wipe your old drive of data and recycle this responsibly
Give the internals a full clean before re-assembly
PAT test your existing charger cable and test the device for electrical safety issues
Don’t worry if you can’t find your charging cable the laptop, in some circumstances we will be able to find a suitable spare replacement
To get involved, please get in touch and make a difference today 🙂
