Fakenham school appeals for donations to help children working at home
A junior school is asking local businesses and people to donate any unused computer equipment to help pupils who have to work from home due to Covid-19.
Any donations received will support Fakenham Junior School pupils who lack the necessary resources at home with schools being closed to most students at this time.
Old or unused devices requested for the pupils include laptops, tablets, iPads and chargers.
Richard Crook from Active Fakenham has urged people to help the school after he was approached by a local teacher.
Mr Crook said: "The Fakenham Junior school is doing a great job in difficult circumstances and I am sure if we pull together we can really make a difference.
"We want to ensure that as many children as possible have access to the equipment they need for their education.
"I understand there are also issues with internet access.
"I hope people will get behind this initiative. Certainly, Active Fakenham will be doing all we can."
Anyone who wishes to donate a device, can leave it in the school foyer in a bag, with their name and contact details inside.
The school is also looking to set up a donations page to help raise funds for equipment.
