Colchester Solicitors donate PCs to local high school

Pupils at Philip Morant High School will be able to access home learning solutions after local legal firm Attwells Solicitors, North Hill arranged for the donation of 15 PCs to the Colchester school.

The donation was organised by former pupil and Attwells Partner Lloyd Clarke who was inspired to help after reading reports highlighting concerns that some children are struggling to access equipment for home learning during lockdown.

“I was advised there are instances where some students have no computer access or only 1 shared computer in the household” Lloyd explains, “Attwells are passionate about supporting worthwhile causes, including school children who have been adversely affected by the pandemic, and as we have an office in the town and my own links with Philip Morant it seemed like a practical and relevant way to help.”

The PCs were delivered to the school on Friday morning by Matt Allman of moveitclearitfinditstoreit who also donated his time and vehicles to the cause.

This is the latest example of charitable giving shown by Attwells to help school children maintain distance learning; earlier this year they donated £500 to an ambitious GoFundMe appeal to raise £50,000 to buy laptops for the Computers for Schools initiative. They also frequently provide support to Emmaus Ipswich and Colchester, a charity that works with vulnerable, socially isolated people and those at risk of homelessness.
