    More than 100 laptops have been purchased by a charity to help disadvantaged children.

    The computers are being offered to 14 secondary schools in the Bedford Borough area.

    They were bought by The Harper Trust's Covid-19 community fund, including a donation by The Bedford Educational Association.

    Kelli Foster, acting headteacher at Mark Rutherford School, said: "This will make a real difference to some of our families who are in desperate need of technology to support their home learning.”

    The charity is also asking for donations of spare laptops.

  5. Laptops given to children to help with online learning

    More than 270 reconditioned laptops and 30 mobile phones have been distributed to children across Dorset to help them with online learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Dorset Council said it had been "overwhelmed with requests" for laptops from schools for pupils who do not have one at home.

    Following the recent government announcement that it would provide IT support to Year 10 students, and those with social care needs, the council said it had put in in an order for 1,000 additional laptops to support more children.
