UNUSED laptops bought over the pandemic could be reused in local schools to help disadvantaged children get access to a device.

The group Laptops for Kids Barnsley is asking local families and businesses to donate any unused technology that they might have.

The initiative takes any donated devices, wipes them using secure software and then distributes them to schools so children from disadvantaged backgrounds have access to the internet.

Barnsley has two drop-off points: Hoyland Common Academy Trust, at Unit 4 Great Cliffe Business Park, and Digital Media Centre (DMC 01), on County Way which are available weekdays from 9am until 4pm.
