I know many of you have seen various volunteering opportunities arise during this difficult period, it is not always easy to fit this round your work day and I am sure that a lot of people really want to do their bit to help. The LEAP federation is a governing body which looks after three Hackney primary schools who urgently need help providing much needed tech equipment for very disadvantaged children who will not be able to access on-line teaching from home.
- These children are already at a disadvantage due their social and economic backgrounds, without any equipment to carry on learning. Whilst the schools are closed it puts their life chances even further behind those of most children and could have a big negative impact on their futures
- The school has given out all the equipment they own, but estimate that there are at least 200 children still in need
- Any help will also take the pressure off families who are under huge amounts of stress as a result of job losses and school closures
Please donate as much as you can, any contribution no matter how small will make a difference and help to purchase much needed equipment for these children. This is such a key time for them to learn, please don't let them lose out. COVID-19 has already had a significant impact on their learning - please help limit the damage.
This will make a difference.
