The businesses still donating laptops to local schools

Two local businesses have been continuing their good work delivering laptops to schools for children to use during lockdown.

The latest school to benefit from the most recent donations by Dukinfield IT company ZenTec Network Solutions was Millbrook Primary in Stalybridge, with Stanley Road Primary in Chadderton also receiving laptops.

Cerid Grimshaw and business partner Mike Brooks at ZenTec put the call-out to encourage people to donate old technology so it could be refurbished and donated to families who need it. 

As previously reported, ZenTec Network Solutions have been busy refurbishing computers and iPads for children locally and wider afield. 

The company has now sent out more than £7,500 worth of technology and has now spent over £2,000 refurbishing devices. 

They have set up a GoFundMe page to raise £10,000 so they can continue refurbishing tablets and laptops to help children learning from home.

If you can help out with donations you can telephone 0161 359 3986.

Meanwhile, Gee Cross-based On The Move Property Boutique has delivered its latest consignment of laptops for schoolchildren to use during lockdown.

The property business launched its campaign to supply local children with laptops for remote learning, with more than £3,200 raised to date.

The latest laptops were delivered for Bredbury Green Primary school pupils.

Donations are still appreciated to help with the purchase of more laptops for children and you can give at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/onthemove-computersforkidsappeal
