FYLDE Rugby Community Foundation is to begin a laptop and tablet initiative next week.

The project is designed to help children in the local area with home schooling and a second-hand technology drop-off point will be in place at Fylde RFC from Monday, February 15.

People will be able to bring working laptops or tablets, with the relevant power cables, to the club between 9am – 4:30pm from Monday-Friday.

Phill Mills, Head of Community Coaching at the Fylde Rugby Community Foundation – a partner of Community Group, which specialises in the formation and operation of community departments for rugby clubs of all levels – said: “It’s great how community spirit prevails in difficult times, the donations we have already received for the drop-off food bank has been fantastic. This new scheme is set out to help schools manage under the pressures of home schooling and delivering lessons on laptops and tablets. Any donations of second-hand technology will be a huge help so that young people in schools can benefit.”

The devices will be professionally wiped clean and updated with new software before being donated.

Please note, mobile phones, Kindles and desktop PCs are not required.
