Donate a Laptop Scheme
As you will be aware, we were provided with laptops from the DfE which we have distributed to
students as well as many school devices that we use in school to support learning. We are very much
aware that there are still students locally who have no access to a suitable device. We were
approached by Matt Yarranton, BLISSTECH Solutions, who recognised the need for some type of
provision locally and wanted to be proactive in resolving the issue. Through his company and with
the full support of our school, he has developed a ‘Donate a Laptop’ Scheme, which we hope you are
able to support in one of two ways: either by donating a laptop or similar device, or by donating
money to cover basic costs of adapting the devices for children’s use. Full details of this can be found
at https://blisstech.co.uk/donate-a-laptop/ or on the Trust website: http://www.sget.org.uk
Lacon Childe School will act as a drop off and distribution centre for this initiative. Devices can be
brought into school between 9am and 3pm each school day. Devices that are refurbished and given
to families will be their responsibility for maintaining, neither BLISSTECH or Lacon will be responsible
for the upkeep or repair of these devices once they have been accepted by the family.
We really hope that you can support this venture in one way or another. Lacon Childe School will
coordinate distribution and would like to hear from any family who would benefit from receiving a
device to support learning. Please contact admin@laconchildeschool.co.uk with your details. We are
really excited about being involved in this fantastic opportunity for our families and hope that you
are able to support us in making it the success we know it can be.
