Support for online learning

Friday February 12, 2021

With millions of children across the UK now learning from home, every child needs a laptop and internet connection to join online lessons, undertake private study and submit work to their teacher.

The Parochial Charities exists to provide support to villagers in need – and support is now available to ensure Great Shelford families can get online and their children continue their education at home. We have already helped some families by providing, for example, refurbished laptops, and we are open to further requests to ensure no child in the village falls behind for want of internet access.

Families needing support can obtain an application form from our partner, John Huntingdon’s Charity at the address below. The form is also available to download from our website at https://gspc.org.uk/grants/. Completed forms should be submitted – by email or post – to:

John Huntingdon Centre, 189 High Street, Sawston, Cambridge CB22 3HJ
