Team story

[p][b]A laptop for every child: bridging the digital divide. [/b][/p][p][b]Refurbo supports Digital Access For All (DAFA)[/b][/p][p]Did you know the digital divide affects more than 1.500.000 children in the UK alone? Here at Refurbo we believe in bridging that gap. Access, inclusion and connectivity are vital for the future of all families. We have teamed up with The Learning Foundation and DAFA (Digital Access For All) to raise money for local Primary schools, giving access to devices and connecting children at school and home.[/p][p]Without access to technology children are excluded from: reaching their potential; learning opportunities and everyday sharing with friends and family. Our goal is for every family to be equipped with the right kit for their needs. [/p][p]Our Refurbo charity offer is called Digital Inclusion for Families (DIFF)...[/p][p]...make a DIFFerence for digitally disadvantaged families.[/p][p]----[/p][p][b]We are launching our first fund-raising DIFF[/b] at the opening of the FTY Football Lab in Branksome on Friday 16th April 2021 with our own superhero and Refurbo Man -Jake Best. [/p][p][b]Man of Action. The Ben Nevis Challenge[/b][/p][p]Could you run up and down Ben Nevis with a four year old child or a microwave on your back?[/p][p]A retired professional boxer and endurance athlete Jake will be running up and down Ben Nevis – (or the equivalent) with a 15Kg computer on his back continuously, with no stops or rest periods, to raise money for computers in schools. He will run up and down the 25m hill 337 times, a distance of 10.5 miles. [/p][p]Jake, who now runs a successful Technology Company which provides cyber security solutions, explains that he wants all children to have opportunities that his own children now have. A local lad himself, who attended Kemp Welch, he asserts that lack of facilities at school and home continue to affect his confidence and self-esteem around technology today. [/p][p]Refurbo will match all money raised up to £5,000.00[/p]
