A message from The Dons Local Action Group:

The DLAG, part of the AFC Wimbledon Foundation charity run an initiative called Keep Kids Connected, which collects donations of laptops under 8 years old to re-home with children who do not have a computer at home. We work within the Wandsworth, Merton and Kingston boroughs and already delivered 1500+ laptops to children via local schools.

With so many schools now teaching virtually, the demand for support has increased and as a small organisation (only started at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020) we are hoping local businesses will be willing to spread the word to help us. We know that many of your members are parents and will be sympathetic to how difficult this time is with home schooling and how impossible remote learning is without a computer.

To donate a device is hassle free, just one simple form to fill in and our team will come and collect the device. We also have an Amazon Wish List with items from a SIM card to a laptop. Full information about us, the form to donate a device and the wish list can be found on our website at https://donslocalaction.org/keep-kids-connected/

We have a growing and active Social Media presence on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook where we highlight our progress and love to highlight the people and businesses that have helped us.
