Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdown restrictions have exacerbated many inequalities that exist within our society and we are seeing the effect of this within our community in Nottingham.
We Need Digital Equipment for Local Children
It’s come to our attention that there are 18 primary school children within 3 miles of our Portland Centre in the Meadows who don’t have access to online learning. We are sure you agree with us that it is not OK that children in our community are so disadvantaged. These children are the future, and we need your support in gathering together laptops, tablets and any other technology you are able to donate. Not only have these children had very limited or no access to online learning during lockdown, they are also isolated from their friends and their community. We want to respond to this need and have joined forces with our friends at The Bridges Community Trust, who deliver amazing local community projects such as Connected2, to do this as quickly as possible.
By donating digital equipment, you can help change the lives of local children in these challenging times. Your help will make the difference, please consider donating to this urgent cause.
If you would like to donate digital equipment, you can drop the items off at The Bridges Community Trust offices Tues 9.30-1.30 or Fri 9.30-1.30.
Alternatively we may be able to arrange a contactless collection. To find out more about this please contact us at Venetia.Sanders@nottscountyfoundation.org.uk and we will endeavor to find a suitable time to collect.
You can also give financially using our JustGiving page and we will use these funds to purchase vital new computer equipment and WIFI dongles for local disadvantaged children.
By working together we can help change the lives of local children in these challenging times.
Lastly, in addition to the amazing Connected2 project delivered by The Bridges Community Trust, the Meadows based charity are also supporting local Meadows residents in booking their Covid vaccines online. They will book your appointment and print off your appointment letter. For more information visit their website or call Suzette on 07708473729.
Thank you so much for your support.
