After we supported London’s laptop donation schemes in the last six months, we look back at what we achieved. We are looking at ways to deepen and continue these vital partnerships with grassroots reuse groups as we plan into the future.
The need for electronic devices is high. We look at how Hackney Fixers, a community repair project in London, is reusing donated laptops to support students.
We had our first, more formal training this week, at the invite of Brent Libraries. Our Restarters worked with 10 people who had signed up for our “Speed Up Your Laptop” training. None wanted to give up on their laptops, but really did feel they needed some basic maintenance skills.
