Raising funds for disadvantaged students to access laptops

We are busy raising funds to supply laptops to disadvantaged children that are unable to access online education during the pandemic because they have not got adequate devices. Since putting out our advertisments, companies such as Kernon-Kelleher Solicitors, Blanchards Bailey LLP and CBA Services Ltd have made generous donations. We have also had offers of second hand laptops from people in the community. We would like to say a big thank you to all those that are helping us. If you would like to make a monetary donation please refer to our donation page and the crowdfunding link. If you would like to donate a device we ask if you could possibly wipe off all data and contact email us at youthsupport@treads.org.uk and we will make arrangements for it to get to us. Many thanks to you all
