MEL Harris founded Mel’s Computer Care in 2010. Now he and his Sale Moor company have joined others donating laptops to schools. They want to help children who don’t have one with online learning.

 Mel said: “When the latest lockdown began, I heard about schools who were struggling to provide laptops for home study."

Mel asked for donations of computers and received about 30. He then upgraded them by providing faster hard drives, adding memory, and refurbishing them so they looked like new.

He has personally delivered laptops to Lime Tree Primary Academy, Sale High School and Pictor Academy. His latest delivery was to Brentwood School and Community School.
