A Wembley primary school has been gifted 11 fully equipped laptops thanks to £5,000 donation.
Friends of Barham Library (FOBL) donated the money to staff and pupils at Barham Primary School in Danethorpe Road to order what they needed.
On March 17, 11 laptops, laptop cases and internet dongles were delivered to the children, headteacher Karen Giles and the schools IT co-ordinator Paulette Williamson.
Barham Community Library, in Harrow Road, has been impacted by the three national lockdowns over the past year but opened to serve the local community whenever possible.
Paul Lorber, a FOBL trustee and a governor at the school for more than 25 years, was aware that some children needed a laptop to help with their home schooling.
