Vision Direct donates over £10,000 worth of laptops to schools
Vision Direct has donated £10,000 worth of laptops to six London schools during lockdown.
Schools receiving the devices have included St. Dunstan’s Cheam, CofE Primary School, Highams Park School, All Souls CoE Primary School, Rhyl Primary School, Hackney New School and Ruislip Gardens School. The laptops have since been distributed to vulnerable families for use by their children whilst homeschooling.
Ashley Mealor, chief marketing officer at Vision Direct, said:“It’s vital that everyone has access to laptops during this pandemic. Like countless others, we’ve made the switch to operating remotely and our business would not have been able to continue functioning without the proper technology to keep us connected. We want to ensure that all children have that technology too, as they battle the challenges of remote learning.”
During the first Covid-19 lockdown, Vision Direct gave away 4,000 packs of free contact lenses to social care staff and teachers and people working for the NHS and police and fire services.
