Computers for Kids (2)

Computers for Kids
is a new Daily Mail campaign for the Mail Force charity, which was set up in 2020 to help healthcare workers and volunteers obtain essential personal protective equipment (PPE). Mail Force is a registered charity established and supported by the Daily Mail and General Trust, which owns the Mail newspaper. The money raised in this campaign will be used to get schoolchildren online so they can do the work set by their teachers.

Laptops will be made available to schools that need them. If more money is raised than needed for this mission, all funds will be applied in support of the work of UK schools in other ways.

Upgrading office computers is something all companies do from time to time – and there has never been a better time to donate business laptops.
