A school has donated old printers to Barnado’s children’s charity.

The printers, from Jo Richardson Community School in Dagenham, will be sold in Barnado’s shops to raise money for the charity.

Kala Boller, student communicaiton manager, said: “This idea was the brainchild of Andrew Dawes, our senior IT technician.

“Like Barnados, we at Jo Richardson Community School believe in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour and we wanted to show our support for this amazing organisation who change the lives of so many vulnerable young people.”
