Community TechAid is very proud to have MP for Streatham, Bell Ribeiro-Addy as our patron.
The role reflects Bell's incredible work in helping bridge the digital divide across Streatham, by encouraging residents to donate unwanted laptops to schools. Bell launched our 'Laptops for Learning' campaign, a fundraiser to purchase laptops for children across Streatham, who don't have access to remote learning. Together we raised over £11,000 to provide new laptops to 47 children!
As Community TechAid continues to grow, we are excited to work with Bell, in providing devices to those that desperately need them, and developing ongoing support through workshops and classes.
Bell says, "In the UK today, digital access is not a luxury, it's a necessity. Community TechAid have gone from strength to strength over the last year in their efforts to respond to and raise awareness around digital exclusion and its underlying causes"
