SCORE APPEAL IN ASSOCIATION WITH SALISBURY CATENIANS. LAPTOPS IPADS FOR OUR CHILDREN

Sisters & Brothers in Christ,

We are living in very difficult times. Every day we hear harrowing stories of ill health, deprivation and mental strain, not to mention death of loved ones. Our school children are facing a particular difficulty in that many do not have devices on which to access their online learning. We are appealing to our Parishioners to help the children in this regard in two ways:

Firstly, if you have a laptop or iPad you do not use anymore these can be donated to the schools to re-purpose for the children. The schools can sanitise them. then remove any data etc so the children can commence they’re on line learning quickly. Point of contact Michael Presley on 07771 803876

Secondly, we are able to purchase pre-used devices, from an approved supplier, for approximately £150.00. If you are able to make any donation it would make a huge difference to the lives and future prospects of these young people. At present the demand would be for over sixty devices. Please be as generous as you can.

Donations can be made on line through SCORE to, account name: Salisbury Catholic Outreach Business Current Account, account number: 89047419, sort code: 52-10-03

Come Gracious Spirit,

Heavenly Dove With light and comfort from above Be Thou our Guardian,

Thou our Guide,

Stay close by every child’s side.

Amen.
