Season 4 | Ep 4 – 500 Laptops for 500 School Children in Need – ASAP!

In today’s live episode of The RAG Podcast, I am joined by Chris Redmond and Tim Roedel, both recruitment owners who approached me with the exact same idea within 24 hrs of one another!

Today we announce our national initiative – Project 500!

As the UK battles through its third national lockdown, Ofcom estimates that 9% of children in the UK (between 1.1 million and 1.8 million) do not have access to a laptop, desktop, or tablet at home.

It is devastating to hear about the families across the country who are fighting daily to homeschool their children without access to the basic equipment that is required.

We have to do something to help and we have to act now…

Project 500 is a scheme that is designed to help provide some of the UK’s most disadvantaged families with the laptops they desperately need.

We have spent time in January sourcing a laptop supplier and having conversations with the Head Teachers of the most impacted schools in the UK.

During February, our aim is to engage our very own recruitment sector in order to supply 500 laptops to some of the families currently struggling. In order to do so, together we need to raise £80,000 in donations.
