Tech-Takeback deliver 23 refurbished laptops to Carlton Hill Primary School as part of Level Up Laptops Appeal
Tech-Takeback has made a second delivery of refurbished laptops to local children without access to IT equipment for home education on behalf of Level Up Laptops. The appeal, launched by Brighton-based business SoPro in partnership with the Tarner Community Project and Tech-Takeback, delivered the 23 devices to Carlton Hill Primary School earlier today. This follows 20 laptops delivered to St Luke’s Primary School on Monday.
The laptops delivered were collected by Tech-Takeback as part of the RevaluElectricals doorstep collection service for unwanted small electricals in Brighton & Hove, which launched in November 2020 in partnership with The ZeroNet and with support from Brighton & Hove City Council and the Recycle Your Electricals campaign. All personal data is removed from the donated devices with a certificated data-erasure process before refurbishment and PAT testing.
Residents of Brighton & Hove can continue to donate unwanted laptops, tablets and other small electricals via the RevaluElectricals service. Local businesses can also request a collection of any quantity of devices using our online collection request form. More details on how to donate.
There are a number of costs involved in preparing devices for use by the most vulnerable members of our community. As a not-for-profit company, we rely heavily on external funding. In order to quickly respond to the increasing demand for devices, we have launched a crowdfunding page on GoFundMe. Please consider donating to help fund the preparation of a device for a child learning from home, a family in need of support or a vulnerable member of our community.
