Dear friend,

I am writing to you today because Croydon’s children need our help.

Thousands of children in Croydon are now reliant on laptops and remote learning to continue their school education. Children with no access to broadband or laptops are falling behind as a result. Every day that a child tries to learn without the right equipment, their educational development is set back. Can you help by donating a laptop or tablet? Click Here

I have been contacted by many worried parents and teachers about children without internet access or laptops to work from.  

I am so pleased that a fantastic group of people from Croydon Commitment, the Croydon Voluntary Action, Palace for Life and Go2Games are collecting old laptops. 

I am helping this campaign by offering to collect any old or new laptops, mobiles, tablets or webcams that you can donate. 

I am contacting lots of people and businesses across Croydon to ask for help. If you or your family have any spare laptops, tablets, or mobile devices to donate, it will make a huge difference to local children. If you don’t have a spare gadget, or would prefer to donate financially, donations raised through here (https://www.gofundme.com/f/keepcroydonconnected) will be used to place technology in the hands of those who need it in Croydon.

If you can donate a laptop, tablet or mobile device, I can come and pick them up from your office or home. I would be grateful if you can fill in the form below to let us know the details.
 
A National Vaccination Effort

Thanks to brilliant Scientists from the UK and around the world, there is hope in the form of the vaccine. I am sure we all agree that this can’t be administered soon enough.

The more people who are vaccinated, the sooner we can recover from this crisis and return to normal. Thanks to the amazing NHS workers in Croydon, over 4,000 people have been vaccinated already at Croydon University Hospital. But the NHS needs our help and support to get everyone vaccinated as quickly as possible.
So encourage anyone who can to:
  • Sign up to NHS volunteer campaigns
  • Speak to friends, neighbours and relatives about the importance of getting the vaccine
  • Ask your faith leaders and local community champions to promote vaccination
  • Start a campaign with your union branch to get your employer to give workers paid
  • Take (and give!) time off to get vaccinated
  • Speak out against disinformation online
  • Check on neighbours and friends to ensure they are safe over the coming months.
Over the coming weeks and months we will need a huge national effort. For those of you who want to carry on or start helping out, please consider registering to volunteer at your local Vaccine Centre and #LetsVaccinateBritain! http://bit.ly/vaccinevolunteer

All the best and stay safe,

Sarah
