RSPA LRC Resource Laptops Fundraising

 This campaign is now closed, and no longer accepting donations.

Total raised

from a target of £2,500.00

Total raised (+ Gift Aid)


Over the last two years Reading School Parents Association have successfully been fundraising for additional laptops each year to keep the LRC Resource Laptops current and in working order as well as building on their numbers. 

We would like to continue this project this year and the Headmaster and the LRC staff have reached out to ask if we could provide an additional 7 laptops. The RSPA are keen to continue our commitment of replacing some of the aging Laptops and maintaining the LRC to a full bank of 30 laptops, enabling the school to keep this vital resource available to our boys.

 In conjunction with the money the Quiz Night raises, any money donated here will go to help us reach the goal of £2500 and 7 laptops.


The demand for use of laptops amongst the 1000 boys at the school is huge. They were loaned out over 13,000 times in the last school year.


They are the only resource available to the boys before during and after school hours to undertake research, access school email, use school licensed software, print homework and complete assignments.


Additionally, they are used by classes when the IT suite is unavailable or where small groups need to undertake research. This occurs on average for 5-6 classes per day.


They cost approximately £500 each, are built to the Reading School tested specifications and have a rugged design to cope with constant and multiple use. They come with a 3 year support contract and run Windows 10 and have access to the applications utilised by the school.

We would like to make all donators aware if we are fortunate enough to exceed our target any additional funds raised will be put towards our next fundraising campaign, thus helping the school with additional urgent requirements for the boys.

If you're a UK taxpayer, please remember to click to agree to the Gift Aid contribution when prompted.  Gift Aid increases the value of your charity donations by 25%, because the charity can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift – at no extra cost to you.

Many thanks for your help in making Reading School the best place for our boys to learn and thrive.
