Coronavirus – Laptop Donation Drive

Apr 4, 2020 | Balham, Brixton Hill, Clapham Common, Constituency Work, Coronavirus Support, News, Streatham, Tulse Hill

The mass closure of schools in Streatham as part of coronavirus social distancing measures means most children will be receiving their education at home for months to come. In order to keep up with school work, children and teachers are heavily reliant on computer technology.

Unfortunately, whilst many schools in the local area have been able to provide students with the requisite technology to continue their education, deep funding cuts mean many are going without. This problem is compounded by household poverty in our area too.

I’m therefore calling on Streatham businesses and residents with any spare laptops, iPads and tablets to donate these to someone who really needs it. As we’ve seen again and again, it’s those with the least who are feeling the effects of this crisis the most and your donation could make a massive difference in helping a local child to keep up with their work.

  1. Get in touch with bell.ribeiroaddy.mp@parliament.uk or reach out to me on social media.
  2. Bag up your laptop for us.
  3. Drop your laptop off with Bell’s team or get us to come and collect from you.
  4. We’ll wipe the data for you and get your laptop to the schools in need.

If you can spare technology of any kind, please do get in touch with me at bell.ribeiroaddy.mp@parliament.uk or reach out to me via any of the usual social media platforms.
