Vodafone UK and children’s charity Barnardo’s are asking the British public to donate unused smartphones and tablets so that they can be refurbished and sent to underprivileged homes. From today, this is open to businesses too, who can donate five or more unwanted smartphones and tablets for redistribution to disadvantaged families and the charity workers who support them.
This initiative give businesses the opportunity to support the community during the pandemic. The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the essential role of digital technology in keeping people connected. Yet hundreds of thousands of people across the UK do not have adequate access to a device or connectivity at home and face huge barriers in accessing education and support services.
The Great British Tech Appeal is looking for smartphones or tablets in working condition. Businesses can donate tech quickly and easily as follows:
- Send an email to [email protected] with: a contact name, collection address and date, phone number and number, size and weight of the boxes to collect.
- A courier will get in touch and arrange collection.
