Aldi is helping students in Coventry by donating over 85 desktop computers to a number of city schools.
In total, eight schools will benefit from the new computers which the supermarket Aldi hopes will allow more students access to online learning resources and to catch up on learning after the disruption caused by the pandemic.
David Barter, managing director of national IT at Aldi, said: “After an unprecedented year, it is important to help our local communities in any way we can. We hope this donation enables students in Coventry to continue to boost their studies with access to online resources.”

“The children have been thrilled to use more of this technology in the classroom,” added Lois Whitehouse, CEO of Inspire Education Trust, which runs a number of the schools involved.
“By having these kind donations, we are able to more frequently deliver whole-class sessions through the use of technology.”
