Ormiston Denes receives generous laptop donations

Ormiston Denes Academy received seven laptops for their students thanks to the generosity of friends, family and the lawyers of Tatham & Co. These laptops have been distributed to students in need.

With challenges faced by many schools and students during the latest national lockdown, Paralegal Maddy Askins rallied support from friends, family and colleagues at the London-based business.

Linked through the Business2Schools website, which allows businesses to donate hardware, software and furniture to schools across the UK, Ms Askins spoke with Ormiston Denes vice principal Adrian Donovan to make sure the laptops were delivered quickly.

The donated laptops have now been distributed to students in need and this generosity matches the work Ormiston Denes has been undertaking with the Department for Education and other partners to ensure every child is fully equipped to continue their education while at home.

Mr Donovan, vice principal at Ormiston Denes Academy, said: “We’re extremely grateful for the generosity of Maddy, her friends, family and colleagues at Tatham & Co, whose willingness to support our students through a difficult period is superb.

“The laptops will go a huge way in helping to ensure that every single student can continue to take part in online lessons, something which is vital not just for their education, but also the social connection it provides.”
