Let's bridge the gap! Help provide tech to those without in the Fairfield School community. All our children deserve a fair chance to shine!

Addressing the need for equal access to essential online educational resources

Fairfield High School Parents Network have launched this fundraiser to provide the technology necessary for all students at the school to access essential online learning at home.

The Covid crisis has revealed widespread inequality of access to the technology needed for education and this is affecting a surprisingly large number of our school community. Some can only access on-line learning on a Smartphone, or are sharing tech with siblings. Many other pupils are using out-dated hardware, or have no access to any computers or internet at all.  

Appeal reaches £6,575

We raised over £5,000 in Stage 1 of the appeal just before Christmas and these funds have now been passed to Fairfield School IT department for the provision of a first wave of laptops, dongles and routers. This has made a real difference to the lives of many students and their families, but there are still many who are struggling and the need is urgent.

In addition to this fundraiser we're also working with DigiLocal who will be repurposing donated laptops and delivering direct to our students. If you do have any used equipment that you can donate please use one of their Drop-Off Points located throughout Bristol.

Online access for all students is now a necessity and not an optional add-on. It's critical that these children do not suffer further and we need to address the problem now, without delay.

Anything you can contribute will be hugely appreciated and will help to safeguard a child's future.

Let's bridge the gap between the haves and the have-nots and give all of our children a fair chance to shine.

Many, many thanks for your generosity and support.
