We at LAMM have been overwhelmed by the community response to our request for old laptops and tablets for school kids to use during lockdown. As most pupils will be returning to school from the 8th March we are suspending donations for the time being. We still have a stack of older laptops and tablets that need repair and refurbishment and we will continue to work on these and give them to local schools. Even if all pupils are back in school, there’s still going to be the inevitable ‘bubble closures’ and periods of self-isolation, not to mention that doing your homework in normal circumstances is much easier with a laptop!
We hope that we will take in donations again in the future to support all pupils having a suitable device at home for their school learning, but for now, please use other methods for recycling or reusing your old devices.
Thank you again, love from LAMM
One thought on “No more digital donations needed for now!”
I take your point about no longer accepting old laptops and tablets, but we have a Canon Pixma MP540 printer that doesn’t work with the latest upgrade to Windows 10. Would you be able to make use of it?
