ICT Reverse supporting primary school’s laptop donation appeal

ICT Reverse is helping a Clayton-le-Moors primary school which has launched an appeal for laptop computers and tablets to help children get online and study.

All Saints Church of England Primary School is working with ICT Reverse and its sister company Mazuma Mobile to help its children get the best access to learning possible.

Together they are looking for people to take any redundant, unwanted, or old devices (PCs, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, monitors), to the Friends and Parents of All Saints summer Fair at the school on July 2 between 11am and 2pm where ICT and Mazuma will be hosting a collection point for you to hand over any donations in a safe a secure way.

All items collected will then be professionally data wiped and where possible reloaded with the latest software and redeployed within the school. 

Any devices not suitable for reuse will be securely recycled with all proceeds shared with the school to help purchase new devices.

Developing skills

School headteacher, Nicola Saporita-Clark, said: “We are desperate to be able to deliver a more effective computing curriculum to our children and we really need to increase the number of devices and update the technology we have in school to do so.

“Our children live in a digital world, and we want to be able to support them in developing skills to flourish in that world.

“Please help us by bringing old and unwanted devices that we can recycle, helping to reuse resources that are without a use whilst raising much needed funds for our school.”

Graham Elleray, Head of Marketing, added: “There are a number of reasons why we want to help the pupils of All Saints and it’s important to us to help ensure the children get the best education possible.

“ICT Reverse was involved in a campaign called Laptops4Kids in the Lancaster area last year that helped provide computers for children during lockdown. It was successful, and it would be great to replicate that success in Clayton-le-Moors.’’
