Cllr Margaret Bird was recently approached by a friend looking for any no longer needed laptop for a 11yr old from a very disadvantaged background who was desperate to do their homework but had no access to a computer outside of the school he goes to.
The request was sent out on Facebook and a reply from a contact who could help thanks to a scheme he is working on. The refurbished laptop.has beeen received and handed over to his teacher today. He is very excited at the thought he will receive the laptop this week even though it is half term. Thank you Capita, West Sussex County Council account.
