Maycroft Manor donates tablets to local school

Maycroft Manor, our care home in Brighton, recently made a donation to a local school to help vulnerable children access online learning from home.

Our industry-leading, residential, nursing and dementia care home donated two new tablets, as well as protective cases, to Elm Grove Primary School, who had reached out to the local community to ask for old laptops and tablets that anyone could spare.

General Manager at Maycroft Manor Care Home, Ian Cole said: “When we heard about Elm Grove needing laptops or tablets to support vulnerable children to access online learning we knew we had to help out.

“Technology has helped our residents so much during lockdown. They have been able to access online exercise classes, programmes and of course stay in touch with their loved ones via Skype and Facetime.

“We are indebted to our local schools who have enabled our team to work during lockdown by staying open for keyworker children and we wanted to give something back, to help children who don’t have access to laptops or tablets at home.”

Head Teacher at Elm Grove, Louise Willard said: “The gift of tablets from Maycroft Manor Care Home is so generous. We thank all of the residents and team. They will make such an incredible difference.

“I really hope Maycroft Manor residents will be able to visit us at the school in the not-too-distant future.”
