In line with its commitment to make a difference, Border to Coast Pensions Partnership has refurbished and donated 36 laptops to three schools, supporting access to digital learning and development.

Three schools in Durham, South Shields, and Luton received the laptops, which will support children’s learning by ensuring they can access resources online, while supporting the development of their skills in an increasingly digital world. These schools are in the communities covered by the 11 Local Government Pension Scheme funds that own Border to Coast.

The laptops have been provided with the support of Razorblue, the IT provider for Border to Coast, who ensured they were fully refurbished and tested.

“Technology is essential in today’s world and children are left at a serious disadvantage in their learning without access to the tools and resources available online. I’m proud that we have been able to give these laptops a new lease of life and ensure the communities we serve can benefit directly from them. Of course, this would not have been possible without the support from Razorblue who have ensured they are ready and fit for purpose.”

Steve Halford, Head of Technology and Resilience, Border to Coast Pensions Partnership

Dan Kitchen, CEO at Razorblue, added: “We were delighted to support Border to Coast with their initiative to repurpose laptops for schools. Developing digital skills can boost future opportunities and aspirations, and we were proud to play a part in supporting the local communities of its Partner Funds.”
