Repair Cafe & Laptops for Kids

Free Laptops for Schoolchildren – donations to us PAUSED

We’ve had loads of laptops generously donated to us recently, so we are pausing donations of used laptops and computers for now, to allow our tech volunteers to prepare the ones we have .

Devices that have been donated to us will be wiped clean of data, repaired where needed and set up ready to help school kids get connected.

If you need a laptop, please bear with us as we have a bit of a waiting list at the moment.

For further further information, email

Thanks to everyone who’s donated an old laptop/tablet so far, with many reconditioned and passed on to very grateful new users.

Repair Cafe Update

Whilst our Repair Cafe has been closed, our volunteer fixers have been busy, preparing laptops to give to schoolchildren and others in need of a device who are trying to learn from home.

Our Repair Cafe is going online! Although we are not running the Repair Cafe at The Mix at the moment, we will be running virtual events, where you can get your faulty appliances diagnosed by one of our tech volunteers. Look out for upcoming events on our Facebook page.
