SCHOOLS and charities could be in line for new IT equipment.

Domestic and General has launched a programme to encourage development of technical capability.

It will be donating computers and other equipment to schools and charities in need.

The first donation went to Patcham High School, in Ladies’ Mile Road, Brighton.

John McKee, headteacher at Patcham High School, said: “This is a fantastic donation at just the right time.

“Patcham High is very fortunate to now have additional laptops and PCs that we can use to support student learning.”
