It’s an award and a project that is close to our hearts, so this was a hugely proud moment for the whole team at Sopro.
Launched inside two weeks after Ryan and I heard a radio report on the growing digital divide, Level Up Laptops is a project aimed at helping children without access to digital learning resources living in Sussex.
The project sees Sopro partner with registered charity Tarner Community Project, KLYK and Tech-Takeback. The aim is to provide children with laptops and tablets to support remote learning and longer-term educational needs.
It does this by harnessing Sopro technology to build partnerships between Sussex businesses, aiming to recycle unused devices and raise money for new ones, and then distribute them to children in need.
The Company Culture Awards judges said: “The entries have left judges overwhelmed and proud, our shortlist and winners this evening have shown incredible initiatives that inspire.”
