Give a laptop

With schools now closed again we’re once more asking you to help those pupils still in need.

There are charities across the country who will safely wipe devices and link up with schools in your area to ensure that they reach the young people that need the devices the most.

Please do not bring donations to BBC sites because we are unable to accept them.
