Tubbs Computer Supplies are in urgent need of old or unused computer equipment to help Eastbourne children studying at home during Lockdown.

They are based in Wharf Road, Eastbourne and supply free computers to families in need to help children keep up with their education.

They also support vulnerable people to help them to combat isolation and to help seek accommodation, work and training.

A spokesperson said: “We have been going since 2013 but as you can imagine in these unprecedented times, demand is extremely high.

Without a computer a lot of children cannot do their school or college work and so many vulnerable people are still isolating and struggle to keep in touch with loved ones and do their regular shopping online.

We always need laptops, towers and tablets but even if you have a spare monitor, mouse, keyboard or wireless dongle etc, they would be very useful.

We completely wipe all hard drives to military standards before installing a new operating system, so no data can ever be retrieved.

We completely understand if you need to keep your old hard drive though.

If you have something to donate or you know someone that needs our services, please email enquiries@tubbscomputersupplies.org

Thank you very much and even if you cannot help, sharing this would enable us to help many more people.”
