HELP STOP DIGITAL POVERTY IN BEDFORDSHIRE
The High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, Susan Lousada, Bedfordshire Learning Link and Luton Learning Link are working together to bridge the digital divide in Bedfordshire by collecting your unused digital devices.
We need your help by donating digital devices
Please reset to factory settings to erase all your personal data. All devices will be refurbished by a professional company to keep you and the school children safe.
Such devices can be passed to Nicola at the Vicarage, Clayhall Road, Kensworth, from where they will be collected by the scheme.
Alternatively financial donations are warmly received.
A brand new Chromebook costs between £200 and £220, Grade A refurbished Laptops £220 and Grade A refurbished iPads £250. Different schools require different devices depending on the learning platforms they use. Younger children and Special Needs Schools often find iPads easier to use.
Should you feel that you are able to make a donation to this appeal, please kindly donate via the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire’s Just Giving Page:
or by cheque payable to Bedfordshire Crimebeat Ltd, referenced BLL and posted to:
Colin Davies, The Old Rectory, Church Road, Westoning, Bedford, MK45 5JW
